The Moon in the Water

By Pamela Belle

The year is 1635. A new life awaits…

When her close family are carried off by the smallpox, ferociously independent Thomazine Heron finds herself an orphan at the age of ten. Not only an orphan, but a considerable heiress.

Thomazine is sent to live with her Heron family cousins in the beautiful rose-coloured sprawling home of Goldhayes in Suffolk. She finds herself torn from all that she knows and thrown into a completely different world. However, she soon falls in love with the romantic house and the Heron family who live in it.

When Thomazine finds herself and her fortune betrothed to her cousin Dominic Drakelon while still only a child, she knows there is something she doesn’t quite trust about the sly, handsome boy. And when she realises she is deeply in love with one of the Heron brothers and he with her, can she find a way of releasing herself from the engagement?

But the clouds of civil war loom on the horizon, and Thomazine’s whole world – not to mention the whole of England – threatens to change forever.

The Moon in the Water is a page-turning, epic, historical romance from a skilful writer of the period.

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. The Moon in the Water is the first in the four-volume Heron saga.
