Sarah Broadhurst's view...

In 1584 Elizabeth I granted a charter for colonisation of a part of North America and this early real life colony and its extraordinary and mysterious fate forms the backdrop for this historical adventure. Whether you know much about early America or this period of English history is irrelevant as Barden expertly weaves intricate historical detail around her love story.

If you like Jenny Barden you might also like to read books by Andrew Swanston, Philippa Gregory and Rory Clements.

Synopsis

The Lost Duchess by Jenny Barden

Emme Fifield has fallen about as far as a gentlewoman can. Once a lady-in-waiting to Queen Elizabeth, her only hope of surviving the scandal that threatens to engulf her is to escape England for a fresh start in the New World, where nobody has ever heard of the Duchess of Somerset. Emme joins Kit Doonan's rag-tag band of idealists, desperados and misfits bound for Virginia. But such a trip will be far from easy and Emme finds her attraction to the mysterious Doonan inconvenient to say the least...

About the Author

Jenny Barden has had a love of history and adventure ever since an encounter in infancy with a suit of armour at Tamworth Castle. Training as an artist, followed by a career as a city solicitor, did little to help displace her early dream of becoming a knight. Impelled by a fascination with the Age of Discovery, she has travelled widely in South and Central America, and much of the inspiration for Mistress of the Sea came from retracing the footsteps of Francis Drake in Panama. Jenny has four children and lives in Hertfordshire with her long suffering husband, a loving Labrador and a deadly Bengal cat. More about Jenny can be found at www.jennybarden.com

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
