The Scandalous Life of Nancy Randolph

By Kate Braithwaite

A spellbinding historical retelling of forbidden love, secrets and murder.

Victim? Temptress? Murderer?

America, 1792. Eighteen-year-old Nancy Randolph, along with her sister and brother-in-law, Richard, are guests at the Glentivar Plantation.

During the night screams are heard coming from Nancy’s room.

By the time dawn breaks over the plantation, the Randolph’s world is changed forever.

Enslaved workers claim to have seen the body of a newborn white baby hidden outside. But no one inside the house knows a thing . . . and no body is found.

Rumors quickly spread of an illegitimate affair between Nancy and Richard.

The dead baby belonged to them. They had murdered it.

The Randolphs are a wealthy and influential family. Richard and Nancy are put on trial in a case that divides not only the Randolph family, but the nation.

The repercussions of that night ripple down the years.

Told by Nancy and her enslaved woman, Phebe, this is Nancy’s own story of what really happened that fateful night at Glentivar.

In this compelling historical mystery Kate Braithwaite brings Nancy Randolph’s extraordinary story to vivid and memorable life.

Perfect for fans of Kate Morton, Kate Foster, Caroline Lea, Emilia Hart, Kristin Hannah, Philippa Gregory, Stephanie Dray and Stacey Halls.
