Shortlisted for the RNA Historical Novel of the Year 2011.

Synopsis

Heart of Stone by Jane Jackson

Shortlisted for the RNA Historical Novel of the Year 2011.

In 1840’s Cornwall, 25-year-old Sarah Govier supports herself and her illegitimate son, Jory, on the income from Talvan, the granite quarry she inherited from her father. But businessman Kinser Landry has good reason for wanting Talvan and will stop at nothing to get it. Her problems mounting, Sarah turns in desperation to James Crago, a gunpowder manufacturer who owns land adjoining hers.

After twenty years as soldier and diplomat in India, Crago, 37, returned home, his face horrifically scarred, a wound sustained during his attempt to help the girl he loved escape a despotic raja. Local reaction to his appearance has turned him into a recluse.

“Jane Jackson’s novel is satisfying on many levels, well-written and pleasurable to read” Historical Novels Review on The Chain Garden

“The writing was so stunning and so realistic I could feel the salt-spray on my face” Historical Novels Review on Tide of Fortune

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Rebecca Jayne Barrett

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

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