The House in Quill Court

(2016)
A novel by

 


It's 1813. Venetia Lovell lives by the sea in Kent with her pretty, frivolous mother and idle younger brother. Venetia's father, Theo, is an interior decorator to the rich and frequently travels away from home, leaving his sensible and artistic daughter to look after the family. Venetia designs paper hangings, and she and her father often daydream about having an imaginary shop where they would display the highest quality furniture, fabrics and art to his clients.

When a handsome but antagonistic stranger, Jack Chamberlaine, arrives at the Lovells' cottage just before Christmas bringing terrible news, Venetia's world is turned upside down, and the family have no option but to move to London, to the House in Quill Court, and begin a new life. Here, Venetia's courage and creativity are tested to the breaking point, and she discovers a love far greater than she could have ever imagined....

From the multiaward-winning author of The Apothecary's Daughter, The House in Quill Court is a gorgeously evocative Regency novel bursting with historical flavour and characters you won't forget. If you love Philippa Gregory and Joanne Harris, you will adore Charlotte Betts.
