A TREACHEROUS COUNTRY
A TREACHEROUS COUNTRY tells the story of Gabriel Fox, a young member of the English landed gentry in 1842. He is suffering as young men do, having fallen in love with a woman who has rejected his marriage proposal. There is also family trouble. He is misunderstood by his unfeeling father and his beloved mother has been locked in the attic after she publicly displayed a measure of independent thinking.
Authentic, original and playful, A Treacherous Country is a novel of loyalty, wisdom and the freedom to act.
