101 Pieces of Me

101 Pieces of Me

Author: Veronica Bennett Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/10/2015

Is a life in film right for Sarah? Set in the late 1920s against the backdrop of the early days of British cinema, this story is told in 101 numbered parts. By 1925, the rate of 24 frames per second had been established worldwide for silent films. So 101 frames - the pieces of the title - make about four seconds. Four seconds of film is enough for 16-year-old Sarah Freebody to become an object of fascination for a young producer who will not rest until he has secured her for his next project. Sarah becomes Clara Hope, acts in films, meets exciting people, falls in love and, in the end, has to decide whether a life in film is right for her.

Vice and Virtue

Vice and Virtue

Author: Veronica Bennett Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/12/2011

What happens when you marry for neither love nor money? 1700, London: a city so crowded and unregulated that anyone, should they so desire, could slip away - disappear down a back street and become someone else. After the death of her father, seventeen-year-old Aurora Eversedge is left without a dowry and agrees to marry a much older man who claims to be wealthy, though in poor health. On their wedding night, Edward Francis confesses that, in fact, he is penniless but that his health is robust - also that his proposal of marriage carried an ulterior motive: he wants Aurora to act as a spy for him. Edward's father had left his fortune to his sworn enemy, Josiah Deede. Edward suspects that Josiah murdered his father and is determined to regain his inheritance and bring Josiah Deede to justice. Aurora's first assignment is to make the acquaintance of Josiah's daughter, Celia, and son, Jos, at a Covent Garden theatre. Vice and Virtue is full of acute observation of social life that characterizes Jane Austen's work - the sort of book Jane Austen would have written if she wrote mysteries.
