Herald of Joy

By Pamela Belle

In the aftermath of the Civil War, England lies quiet. For now…

The war left much of the country ravaged and at Wintercombe, in Somerset, the St Barbe family was not left untouched. Young Nat, succeeding to the baronetcy upon his father’s death, claims Wintercombe as his own. He must wrestle not only with the demands of the estate, but his often unruly siblings as well. Meanwhile, Nat’s twin, Rachael, proves as ever difficult to love, as she blindly and recklessly pursues the course her father laid out for her before his death.

For Silence, it is a time of freedom and longing — finally free of her disappointing, disapproving husband, she dreams of reuniting with the dashing Captain Nick Hellier.

Defeated against overwhelming odds at the battle of Worcester, Nick flees for his life and begins a long and weary tramp across the country that will ultimately bring him back to Wintercombe. And back to Silence…

Pamela Belle was born and bred in Suffolk, the daughter of a local prep school headmaster. She went to the University of Sussex, and went on to become a primary school teacher. She is also the author of The Heron series.
