Sarah Broadhurst's view...

If the incredibly beautiful cover isn’t enough to entice you, the equally brilliant narrative voices that tell the story of Luke (in third person) and Louisa (in first) certainly should. A lush, clever and engaging novel, powerfully and, at times, very erotically written with a fantastic twist at the end this is a novel that deserves to be read.

If you like Kate Worsley you might also like to read books by Carol Birch, Tracey Chevalier and Sarah Waters.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

She Rises by Kate Worsley

Louise Fletcher, a young dairy maid on an eighteenth-century Essex farm, has long been warned of the lure of the sea - after all, it stole away her father and brother. But when she is offered work as a maid in the naval port of Harwich, she leaps at the chance to see more of the world. Fifteen-year-old Luke has been press ganged and sent to sea on board the warship Essex. Aching for the girl he left behind, he must learn fast if he is to survive.

Reviews

An immensely enjoyable novel, full of energy, intelligence and delicious turns of phrase. Worsley does just what a great historical novelist should do: she inhabits her characters without strain, without fuss, but with obvious assurance, making them and their period feel utterly close and convincing. I can't wait to see more of her fiction - Sarah Waters

If you like romance you'll love this debut novel by Kate Worsley. A gripping and touching tale - Sunday Express
