Charlotte



Charlotte is my third, and probably best - so far - book. Many of the intermediate drafts are available on this site, if looking at how an authoress struggles to write a book is interesting to you. It's now available on smashwords.

Charlotte De Vere is left destitute in the wilds of Somerset by her gambling, spendthrift and generally clueless father and brother. In order even to have her mother's portion settled on her, she needs to sell the family estate. Freddy Talbot, the vulgar and rather insensitive son of a wealthy industrialist, who is soon to be in charge of 'the firm', purchases the estate for his family and the fun begins.
