2015 author shot

After the more than positive response to earlier books in the Croome saga book – that’s After She Drowned and  The Captain’s Ward (see below), the third in the trilogy is now out.

The Croome Victorian Trilogy runs from the 1880s to the early 1890s, and you can read the books in any sequence, though I think you’ll enjoy the trilogy more if you read The Captain’s Ward before the third and latest, Man’s Estate.

Man’s Estate, the third in the Croome saga, takes place in 1893 with linked stories from the growing town of Croome and the nearby Manor. Two fathers must choose between daughters and sons. The squire’s four children are headed by the tall, proud, good-looking Riordan. Does he deserve to take over the estate? Meanwhile, in Croome itself, should works foreman Nathan Brook favour his prodigal son over his stay-at-home daughter?

Earlier in the saga . . .

Located in the same semi-rural area around Croome and Milham, The Captain’s Ward tells of the close relationship between a teenage orphan and her charismatic guardian.
