St James' Fair : A gripping 19th Century Scottish saga Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


When a chance for freedom arrives will she dare to take it?

Odilie Rutherford is known in the small Scottish town of Lauriston for two things - her beauty, and her father, Canny.

As a self-made man, Canny has the wealth he dreamed of but not the status and hatches a plan to marry his daughter to local bachelor of note the Duke of Maudesley. Yet Odilie cannot bear the thought of a life with the ill-mannered Duke, and when the annual summer fair arrives in town for three days she seizes a chance to enjoy the freedom she craves.

But as the carnival atmosphere fills the town, Odilie will find her life changes in ways she could never have imagined. A captivating Scottish saga perfect for fans of Tessa Barclay and Val Wood.
