Rebecca's Brat

(A book in the Margery series)
A novel by

Adam Margery, intrepid soldier turned farmer, has never felt more conflicted.

Though he loves his wife dearly, their physical relationship is strained: it almost killed Mary bringing their son Thomas into the world, and he dare not risk losing her in that way again.

To make matters worse, not only does their maid pine for him but his ward Sara's eye is also beginning to wander.

The daughter of Mary's sister Rebecca, Sara's lustful nature will alter the course of all their lives...

In a fit of youthful naivety, she teases Thomas and absconds to London with him.

Yet London was not as she had imagined, and the two youths are soon led astray: Thomas is beaten and left in the gutters, and for Sara the ordeal is just beginning.

Raped, robbed and sold to a slave ship, she ends up on a journey half-way round the world, to Charles Town.

Despite her pleading, none will listen and she is auctioned, sold to a pimp, her hopes of rescue swiftly fading as she is consumed by this new hell...

But Adam has not abandoned her.

Braving London's cut-throats, the steamy jungle of West Africa and sea battles with vicious pirates, Adam's search for Rebecca's Brat will reach a fateful climax in the Carolinas...
