A LADY NEVER TELLS
Four unconventional American sisters and three aristocratic bachelor brothers set the stage for the first novel in Camp's Willowmere trilogy. With a bit of mayhem, humor, misunderstandings and enough sensuality to please any reader, this consummate storyteller writes a well-crafted and enchanting tale.
With the passing of their mother, Mary Bascombe and her three sisters leave America for England to seek out their estranged grandfather, the Earl of Stewkesbury.
Sir Royce Winslow comes to their aid when he stops a thief who snatches Mary's satchel. He is taken aback with the discovery that the now deceased earl was their grandfather. The present earl, Royce's stepbrother, Oliver, will be responsible for the sisters, who carry pistols and knives and walk around London without a maid or a footman. Royce is intrigued by the opinionated and spirited Mary and likes her as she is. An attempted kidnapping puts the sisters in danger and all band together to catch the scoundrel. Though Royce will give his life and heart to Mary, can he give her the love she desires? (POCKET STAR, May, 384 pp., $7.99)
