Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Born in a Mission in China, Lucy Waring finds herself with fifteen small children to feed and care for when she is thrown into the grim prison of Chengfu and meets Nicholas Sabine - a man condemned to death. He asks her the same cryptic riddle that Robert Falcon, another 'foreign devil', has asked her only the day before, and the mystery of this riddle echoes through Lucy's when she is brought to England by the Gresham family. Unused to English ways, she is constantly in disgrace and is soon involved in the long and bitter feud between the Greshams and the family who live across the valley in the house called Moonrakers. In England Lucy discovers danger, romance and heartache, and mystery as strange events lead her to doubt her own senses. How could she see a man, long dead, walking in the misty darkness of the valley? Who carried her unconscious into the labyrinth of the Chislehurst Caves and left her to die? It is only when Lucy returns to China, a country now at war, that she finds the answers to the mysteries of her past. It is in China, at the moment when all seems lost, that she at last finds where her heart belongs.

Mitji had lived with the Aboriginal tribe for as long as she could remember. With her white skin, thin nose and red hair, she does not look like the rest of the tribe but she has learnt their skills of survival in the arid desert. As she nears womanhood, her oddness has made her an outcast and she must leave her people. She goes on a walkabout, in search of the walypalya, the tribe with red hair and white skin like her own, who had come from the great waters. Perhaps they would receive her kindly and let her stay with them. On her wanderings she comes upon a white man, lying half - dead in the blazing heat, and nurses him back to health. Together they made their way to his home, and Mitji becomes Meg and has to learn to wear clothes, to sleep in a bed, to sit on a chair - and to speak English. Gradually, she came to understand that she was herself one of the walypalya, a subject of Mitjiquin, Elder of Elders of all the white tribes - Queen Victoria. Meg has barely started her journey towards her true origins. In the world of the walypalya, there are new dangers and Meg must confront the terrors of a long sea voyage before she can find happiness on the other side of the world. Only the knowledge that she has learnt from her Aboriginal tribe can guarantee her survival and that of her friends.

Jani, the strange and lovely heroine, has been brought up in a remote region of the Himalayas in Tibet by a runaway English soldier.

She becomes locked in a macabre struggle, long prophesied by the High Lama of her Tibetan youth, against the strange and terrifying powers of the Silver Man. Madeleine Brent's story of love and loyalty, of mystery and danger, moves on to a startling climax back amid the Himalayas where it all began as Jani's secret is unravelled.

It is 1890 and Hannah McLeod, an 18 year - old English girl, is living in Paris where she works at a small restaurant. Only her neighbour, Toby Kent, a struggling artist, knows the strange and horrifying secret that means she cannot return to England. One night, while rescuing a stranger from attack, Hannah becomes entangled in circumstances that force her to flee from France to England to take up the mysterious offer she had received from Sebastian Ryder. But why should Mr Ryder want to employ her? Does he know something of which she is unaware? What are the secrets of her past? Hannah is ignorant of her true identity and convinced that she will be forever denied love because of her shameful past, and now finds herself plunged into a world of nightmarish intrigue. As her adventure unfolds, carrying her from England to Mexico and back again to Paris, Hannah finds herself caught up in a struggle between two men of great wealth and power - a struggle which threatens her life. Vividly recreating the atmosphere of the 1890s, exposing the dark and sinister elements that lurked below that outwardly respectable era, Madeleine Brent crafts another story of drama and suspense.
