Megan/Carole Llewellyn/Robert Hale /HB/ £18.99 224 pages

Megan has to leave her home in Wales and her family to enter service. At first she is unhappy, mostly because of her spiteful cousin Lizzie. Megan doesn't mind the work and the servants are friendly, but she is shown unwanted attention by Harold, the younger son of Mrs Fothergill. Robert Fothergill rescues her once but Harold rapes her at the second attempt. Unwilling to cause a scandal, Megan returns to Wales after her father dies. Misfortune seems to haunt her and her family and it is only after several years that this compelling story turns full circle.

A good, believable tale that makes the reader want to continue to the end. Four red roses, Morna
