Part adventure, part romance, part tragedy, this has been described by reviewers as a splendidly imagined tale and a compulsive read.
Martha Morgan, the beautiful young mistress of the Plas Ingli estate, is warned that trouble is brewing for her family. She tries to carry on with her life - but then she receives the most terrible news that any young wife can imagine. Despair threatens to overwhelm Martha, but she has many responsibilities and must live up to expectations.
Little by little, with help from her family and from some of the more colourful local characters, she sets out to prove that she is more than a match for the scoundrels who have committed an appalling crime. The villains seek the gold hidden somewhere on the estate, and they have plans for Martha too. But she has her angels around her. She has a mind of her own, and she is very angry......
In this complex and enthralling novel there are five different storylines woven tightly together. The story stands alone, and it deals with perhaps the most important part of the heroine’s long life, during which she is forced to learn how to take responsibility for her own actions and how to protect her own “house of angels” by using female guile and by trusting her own instincts.
“A compulsive read, with shades of Cordell and Cookson.” “ A splendidly-imagined and well-told tale of good triumphing over evil - an adventure story in which the narrative never flags.” “A complex tale of murder, intrigue and romance. Mixing grief and pathos, exuberance and humour in equal measure, the whole narrative has a strong sense of place.” “Based on her diary, this novel reaches out and pulls you into Martha's small world. Beautifully written.”
Each volume in this Saga deals with an episode in the life of the feisty and sensuous heroine Martha Morgan, the Mistress of a small country estate, in the years 1796 - 1855. Mistress Martha is one of the most complex and well-rounded characters in contemporary literature -- displaying, as she goes through life, a multitude of conflicting virtues and vices which have endeared her to many thousands of faithful readers.
This story (like the other seven in the series) is narrated by a male author, in a diary format, using a female voice. Foolhardy and even dangerous? Yes, but in the unanimous view of female reviewers, spectacularly successful.
