Set against the background of revolutionary France and the brilliant society of Regency England, this stunning novel by Norah Lofts unfolds the fascinating adventures of the men and women whose destinies began - and ended - with the house called Nethergate.
This is Isabella de Savigny, an aristocratic refugee from the French Reign of Terror, her cousin's magnificent English country estate promised sanctuary. But Nethergate became a prison to the high-spirited young woman. For its mistress, the cold-blooded and beautiful Lady Rosaleen, treated Isabella like a servant. When Isabella was seduced by Rosaleen's son and discovered she was to have a child, Rosaleen devised a cunning and vicious plot to get rid of her.
In her own way, in her own time, Isabella took her revenge.
