First in the series ‘The Strongs of Summerleas Farm’. The tale of a marriage…and the search for fulfilment. Hampshire, England, 1829. When seventeen-year old Mary Springer marries George Strong and arrives with him at Summerleas Farm, she has no way of knowing that he is still obsessed with his former lover, Annie, the woman now married to his brother. Nor does she know that resentful of George’s marriage and unhappy in her own, Annie is scheming to rekindle her relationship with him. Isolated and lonely in her new surroundings, Mary struggles to cope with her husband’s cold and evermore distant behaviour, while for his part, George laments choosing such a young and innocent wife. So when Annie is widowed by the unexplained death of her brutal husband and a young farm-hand offers Mary the chance to discover what is missing from her life, will their marriage survive? Against a backdrop of the uprisings sweeping Hampshire in the 1830s, the story of George and Mary’s ill-matched union is a tale of their search for love and fulfilment, of adultery and betrayal and of the lengths to which some people will go in the name of love. What reviewers had to say: “From the very beginning, the scene is set well for the remainder of the book and is well written, engaging the reader immediately with its colourful characters throughout this enjoyable read.” – Historical Novel Society “Great twists and turns with intrigue to keep you thinking. Sandra-Jane Goddard has written a good read in The Worst of Lies…” – Historical Novel Society A note from the author: When I talk to people about my books, their first question is often ‘Would I like them?’ and of course that’s really difficult to answer. So over time, my response has become to ask them what sort of books and characters they like to read about. And then, if in particular they mention the nineteenth-century, family sagas, romance, emotional conflict, tangled relationships and earthy, rural settings, then I tell them that they might. But if, more than that, they tell me that they want to be drawn in by flawed characters and broken relationships; that they want to immerse themselves in a book to be savoured slowly and that will linger with them once finished; that they aren’t squeamish about sex and adultery and prefer grit and realism over fairy-tales, then I tell them that they’re probably in for a treat. And if they’re still undecided, then I suggest that they might like to visit one of my blogs or my website, where they can read the first chapters…and decide for themselves whether they want to buy the book and keep reading… Sandra-Jane Goddard, Author, The Strongs of Summerleas Farm Series.Fiction & Literature
