Product Description

Product Description

At the age of fifteen, Katherine Widcombe, the niece of a baronet, is found missing from her bed whilst visiting her maternal aunt in Bristol. She is returned to her aunt and uncle’s home, Widcombe Hall, blindfolded and with the weight of a terrible secret on her young shoulders. Six years later, she is invited to spend Christmas with her cousin, Philippa and her new husband Conrad, Earl of Croston. She is horrified when Conrad confesses his love for her. Dismayed by the awful truth of her past, Katherine returns to the Hall and decides to accept the marriage proposal of Sir Herbert Fox, a man thirty years her senior. But marriage doesn’t bring her the peace she craves and in fact, she discovers that her husband has secrets of his own and this will bring terrible consequences for Katherine. These consequences will mean a perilous journey and privations that a woman of Katherine’s wealth and rank would never be expected to endure and will draw on all her strength and courage to overcome.

4.0 out of 5 stars Broken Blossoms 30 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Once again Ms Bell has written another story with credible characters and situations. There is a poignancy and air of tragedy attached to the heroine Katherine Widcombe which dogs her life regardless of her determination to avoid or bypass it. We sense this through Ms Bell's writing, even though we do not know the complete nature of her secret. The unexpected twist three-quarters of the way through changed what could have been a run of the mill romance into something much darker and thrilling.
