Product description

From the Back Cover

Miriam Wakeford was full of hope when she arrived to take up her new appointment as needlewoman and companion in the bleak, windswept house of Tancred, high on the South Downs.Her strict Quaker upbringing was no preparation for the experiences which awaited her there...

John Tancred, a widower, was a mysterious, moody figure, frequently harsh and sometimes surprisingly kind.His young daughter, Esmee, seemed unbalanced...John Tancred's mother was an imperious old lady who ruled the decaying mansion from her wheelchair.Above all, the atmosphere was filled with the evil, violent presence of John's dead father, Richard, who by his excesses had brought ruin, infamy and tragedy to the name of Tancred.

Format: Paperback
Definitely the poor relation in the Diane Pearson novels family.
I love her other books and have re-read them many many times - but this is
like a Mills and Boons book in comparison. Not great.

After reading Csardas I expected more. Maybe this is an earlier novel? It is not as deep as the former, but enjoyable

Probably the least enjoyable of her books, try The Marigold Field to see what her better writing is about.

3.0 out of 5 stars An earlier effort by Dianne Pearson 6 Nov. 2012
By J. Aldrich - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Bride of Tancred was not my favorite .. too dark and moody, I thought. I highly recommend Csardas; and Summer of the Barshinskys; and the last one ... Voices of Summer ..... and in that order.
