The Secrets of Elloughton Park
Historian James Postlethwaite is told about a series of journals started in the eighteenth century belonging to Lord and Lady Carlisle of Elloughton Park in Nottinghamshire. Among the archives, he is surprised to also find the diaries of Ginny Farmer, a cinder maid.
Excited by the fresh perspective the documents offer, James immediately acquires them for his University. As he reads the diaries, it becomes apparent that Ginny was involved in a long-buried scandal. Enthralled by her tragic story and admiring her courage and resourcefulness, he sets about discovering her fate.
The journals take him on a turbulent journey from a Bristol orphanage to the seedy underbelly of Georgian London. And as James delves deeper into Ginny's shocking testimonies, the past soon begins to chime eerily with the present. What really happened to Ginny. How did her diaries end up at Elloughton Park? And what scandalous secrets will James discover…?
Once I had read through the first 10 pages or so, it was impossible to put it down. Every night after my wife had fallen asleep, I would get back to the plot. Finished it in three part nights.....superbly written and keeps the reader on tenterhook.
Amazon Review *****
Having read the first two books in Steve's trilogy, I look forward eagerly to
reading the third.
I took "A Canopy of Stars" on a recent holiday with me, and I was sad when I had finished it! I had previously returned from our daily stroll eagerly anticipating my afternoon session on the sunbed with Mr. Taylor!!
