Lancashire, 1760. As a genteel woman with an education but no dowry, Dorcas Wilde has resigned herself to a life as the companion of her spinster aunt. However, when she receives a proposal from Ned Howarth — a kind yeoman farmer — she puts aside her prejudices and agrees to become his wife. The couple’s family and friends all disapprove of the match. And as the mistress of Ned’s farm, Kit’s Hill, Dorcas feels isolated and unwelcome.
Jean Stubbs (1926 – 2012) war eine britische Schriftstellerin, die vor allem historische Romane geschrieben hat. “Many times authors fail to adequately capture tone and flavor of the era in which their stories are set. Not so with Jean Stubbs in this series set in the 1700s. The dialogue between the characters is spot on, especially with the Quakers.” (Leser) (14 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 341 Seiten noch günstig?
