Publisher's Summary

1688: Beth Ambrose has led a sheltered life within Merryfields, her family home on the outskirts of London; a place where her parents provide a sanctuary for melancholic souls.
A passionate and gifted artist, Beth shares a close bond with Johannes the painter, who nurtures her talents and takes her on as his apprentice.
But as political tensions begin to rise in the capital, Noah Leyton arrives at her family home in the middle of the night with a proposition that turns Beth's world upside down. And when Merryfields becomes refuge to a mysterious new guest, whose connections provide an opportunity for Beth to fulfill her artistic ambitions, it soon becomes clear that it comes at a price....


What the Critics Say

"A feast for the senses. With the sensual language of Patrick Suskind's Perfume and the historical flavour of Philippa Gregory, this is a lush, immersive read" (Holiday Magazine on The Apothecary's Daughter)

Easy listen

I had to spend quite a few days in hospital recently and spent some of the time listening to this book. It is not the best book of Charlotte Betts that I have read, nevertheless, it was an easy listen and well researched. I'm sure that a small extra push would make Betts' historical novels come to life. However, it's not quite there yet but it's entertaining and easy to digest.
