Product Description

Product Description

A heartfelt rags-to-riches saga set in Yorkshire in 1896.
When Lord Farnley’s daughter dies, Lucy Oldfield is ordered to burn the exquisite French doll her father gave her. But Lucy cannot destroy it and keeps the doll. Soon after, Heaton Hall is closed and she returns home to Leeds, but the death of her mother and a fleeting affair leave Lucy alone and with a son to support.
A chance encounter with a gentleman on a train, and the offer of a cottage in the country, brings a change in Lucy’s life and fortune, but the discovery of a girl on the moors has a lasting impact. A fire, the Great War, a legacy, a sea-journey to India and a robbery all play a part in this 25 year saga.
Love, loss, pain and joy are the ever changing facets of Lucy’s life and throughout the years, the doll is never very far away. It has its own role to play and eventually will deliver a very special gift of happiness.

More About the Author

May 31, 2010 and FLOATING GOLD has just been published. It's a nautical fiction adventure and I am delighted to announce that it is receiving excellent reviews (Highly Recommended and 5 stars) both in England and USA.

If this book performs well, I will have to write a sequel.

I always appreciate feedback on my books and look forward to your comments.

I live on the beautiful island of Tasmania (off the bottom of Australia) and am currently studying at the University of Tasmania. I had started writing a book about Matthew Brady, the Tasmanian bushranger but as I fell in love with Tasmania's convict history, I thought it was time to learn more about that incredible period of history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Through Glass Eyes by Margaret Muir 23 Aug 2012
By Erin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm an historical saga tragic, read them all the time. Finding a particularly good one is a little a akin to finding replacement work boots that feel as good on the first day as the well worn pair being replaced were in their prime; doesn't happen often enough. So for me to say, Through Glass Eyes by Margaret Muir is exceptional it means a lot.

Through Glass Eyes is one of those enchantingly exquisite gentle, and not so gentle journeys through time. It draws the reader along with an invitation to share intimate involvement in the affairs of the protagonist's life, Lucy Oldfield; the loves, hurts, joys and regrets of forty odd years. The powerless and powerful events and decisions that govern the future are all there to take, give, hold and live. Simply wonderful. I loved this book. I'm becoming something of a Margaret Muir fan. Five stars (worth at least six).

Pleasant story with a few sad happenings along the way. A nice thread weaves its way throughout the story and ends very nicely.
