A tale of twists and turns following the most unlikely of female leads.
‘How do you know my name?’ I asked... ‘We will come to that,’ he said.
‘Do you think they meant to kill him?’
War between Britain, France and Spain forms the background to Beverley Elphick's much-anticipated second novel, Retribution. Our heroine Esther Coad is looking forward at last to starting a normal family life; but with the town under threat, and plagued by shadows from the past, can Esther reach her longed-for happy ever after?
This is the second instalment of Beverley Elphick’s trilogy set in the eighteenth century when smuggling is rife and a strong female voice rarely heard.
At the heart of the story is family; not always the one you are born with, but the one you carve out for yourself.
