Farringdon's Fate, Paperback / softback Book

Farringdon's Fate Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


A house. A dynasty. A gypsy's curse. Another gorgeous escapist read from the Queen of West Country Saga, Linda Finlay. One noble family. Five eligible daughters. A sealed fate. Nettlecombe Manor, nestled in the rolling hills of Devon, is home to the Lord Farringdon and his second wife, Lady Charlotte.

As if running the vast estate wasn't enough, Lord Farringdon has five daughters to keep him busy.

Lady Charlotte is determined that the betrothal of the eldest, Louisa, should be celebrated with a ball which is the envy of Devon society and summons a corsetiere from Exeter to measure them up for new corsets. Apprentice Jane Haydon arrives at Nettlecombe to do the fittings.

Having never set foot in such a grand home, Jane is disturbed to hear tell of a gypsy's curse which has haunted the family for generations, and a local wise woman's vision that there will never be a wedding at Nettlecombe... Linda Finlay returns with this glorious tale set in the West Country. Praise for Linda Finlay: 'Sure to delight her ever-growing legion of fans' Dilly Court 'Warm and atmospheric, you can practically taste the sea breeze' The Express 'Rich with carefully drawn characters who really come to life in the hands of this skilled writer' NorthernReader 'Evocative' Frost Magazine 'A treasure of a read with romance, rural history and a happy ending' Devon Life
