The Cornish Lady Nicola Pryce


Educated, beautiful and the daughter of a prosperous merchant, Angelica Lilly has been invited to spend the summer in high society. Her father’s wealth is opening doors, and attracting marriage proposals, but Angelica still feels like an imposter among the aristocrats of Cornwall.

When her brother returns home, ill and under the influence of a dangerous man, Angelica’s loyalties are tested to the limit. Her one hope lies with coachman Henry Trevelyan, a softly spoken, educated man with kind eyes. But when Henry seemingly betrays Angelica, she has no one to turn to. Who is Henry, and what does he want? And can Angelica save her brother from a terrible plot that threatens to ruin her entire family?

The Cornish Lady is the fourth novel in a stunning series set in eighteenth-century Cornwall, perfect for fans of Poldark.

The Cornish Lady by Nicola Pryce is published by Corvus (7th March 2019) and is available to purchase in digital and paperback formats.

I was thoroughly enraptured with this book from the first page to the last! A definite must read! 

Nicola Pryce has written this romantic tale, set amongst the delightful landscape of Cornwall, of a young lady caught in the throws of society’s prejudices and ambition.

Angelica Carew has risen to wealth through her fathers and mothers determination, despite her somewhat dubious background – and yet her beauty and knowledge are what pushes her into the aristocratic point of favour. Angelica must decide to break from expectation and follow her heart to save those she loves or to remain trapped in the grasp of those who manipulate her.

Nicola Pryce has written this story in an enticing and easy flowing style, following on the mainly prevailing issues of the period of wealth, poverty and suffering of the class division.

I am desperate to read more!
