From the cover: “Felicity Hammond, the only daughter of a Devonshire landowner, has been brought up in the Puritan persuasion and she finds herself facing death for befriending Piers Airley, a handsome fugitive from the Battle of Sedgemoor. She only escapes by marrying Charles Lestor the Cavalier squire of Ottley Manor, whom she had known all her life.
The marriage starts tragically, for she finds herself despised and denied her rightful place as mistress of Ottley by Isabella, her haughty sister-in-law. Indignity is heaped upon her as her husband fights to secure her fortune and further complications arise with the reappearance of Piers Airley and the revelation of her husband’s fateful secret.
Set in the troubled years of James II’s brief, ill fated reign, this vivid story tells of divided loyalties and black-hearted betrayal and of love and adventure.”
