Hopes and Sorrow

Hopes and Sorrow

A novel by

The year is 1893.

Mary Gregg is a lowly serving girl. But she dreams of escaping from the drudgery of her serving life in rural Scotland.

One stormy night, fate grants Mary the chance to escape after she saves the life of a friend.

Moved by foreboding glimpses of the future, Mary is transformed from servant girl to spiritual seer.

But this gift soon becomes a curse as her family and her village grow suspicious of her. Branded a witch, Mary flees and seeks employment with the mysterious Miss Patten - a woman who believes that they have been brought together by powers from the Great Beyond.

At Ivylea House, Mary's life will be swept up by her spiritual powers - and face a challenge that will determine her fate.

'Hope and Sorrows' starts as an intimate story of one woman's life and grows into a familial epic as children and grandchildren grow, learn and love.
Set against the background of rural Scotland, it follows the story of three generations touched by magic.

'An enthralling story that kept me hooked from the first page to the last' - Robert Foster, best-selling author of 'The Lunar Code'.

Jenny Chaplin is a well known writer to loyal readers worldwide for her books on Scottish social history and for her articles in the Scots Magazine and the Scottish Banner. Jenny, as a Fellow of the Society of Antiquarians of Scotland, is well qualified to write her historical novels after years of research into and writing about Scottish social history. She now writes her novels in her centuries old cottage on the Island of Bute under the name Jenny Telfer Chaplin to differentiate between her fiction and non-fiction writing.
