The Daughter of River Valley

Free sample

An Englishwoman falls for a handsome intruder in this “emotional, compelling and atmospheric” historical romance by the author of The Thief’s Daughter (Chicks, Rogues and Scoundrels).
 
Cornwall, 1861. Beth Jago is an independent seamstress living in her own remote cottage in Cornwall’s River Valley. She has what appears to be an idyllic life—but appearances can be deceiving. Lately, Beth has been receiving mysterious threats from an unknown outsider. So when she finds a strange man in her home, she acts swiftly to protect herself. One frying pan to the head knocks the intruder out cold—and nearly kills him. Worst of all, the blow seems to have robbed the handsome stranger of his memory.
 
Afraid he might die, Beth reluctantly nurses him back to health. Yet can she trust the man with no name who has entered her life? Or is he as dangerous as his nightmares suggest? As they grow closer, the threats become more severe. Perhaps they are somehow linked to the man with no past. Or perhaps the real danger is still outside waiting . . . and watching them both.

About the author

Victoria Cornwall grew up on a farm in Cornwall and can trace her Cornish roots as far back as the 18th century. It is this background and heritage which is the inspiration for her Cornish based novels.

Following a fulfilling twenty-five year career as a nurse, a change in profession finally allowed her the time to write. She initially self-published two novels, Old Sins Long Shadows and The Gossamer Trail under the name B.D.Hawkey. In 2016, award winning publisher, Choc Lit, acquired both books as part of a four book deal. Old Sins Long Shadows is now published under the new title, The Captain's Daughter, and The Gossamer Trail is now titled, The Daughter of River Valley. 

Victoria is married and has two grown up children. She likes to read and write historical fiction with a strong background story, but at its heart is the unmistakable emotion, even pain, of loving someone.

She is a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association.
