The Penny Heart, Paperback / softback Book

The Penny Heart Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Sentenced to death for a simple confidence trick, Mary Jebb escapes the gallows ...but her reprieve is harsh: seven years in the unforgiving penal colony of Botany Bay.

Yet Mary is determined not to be forgotten, sending two pennies, engraved with a promise, to the two men who sealed her fate. Timid artist Grace Moore jumps at the opportunity to marry handsome gentleman Michael Croxon - happy if only to get away from her drunken father.

But when Grace takes on a new cook, the two penny heart love tokens reveal she is tied to a world she didn't know existed ...A world of deceit, double-crossing, revenge and murder.
