The 'Ambition & Destiny' Series was inspired by VL McBeath's interest in family history. When she started her research she had no idea what she would find or where it would lead. A couple of years later, however, she felt compelled to turn the unfolding story into a novel.
The story is an epic family saga of love, loss and betrayal set against the backdrop of Victorian Era England. It starts in 1839 with a short story prequel 'Condemned by Fate', before moving into the main series which is told in five parts, spanning 1846 to 1911.
Born and raised in Liverpool (UK), Val trained as a scientist and has worked in the pharmaceutical industry for many years. She now lives in Cheshire with her husband, youngest daughter, and cat. In addition to family history, her interests include rock music and Premier League Football.
