The second stop is over on The Writing desk, by Tony Riches.
I was asked to guest post by Tony Riches over on his sight. I wrote about the subplot of Ropewalk and the history behind the Reformers and right to vote.
The Reformers and the right to vote.
I would like to thank Tony Riches blog ‘The Writing Desk’ for allowing me to guest post on their site as I discuss the Reformers and the right to vote, an aspect of the historical novel ‘Ropewalk: Rebellion. Love. Survival.’
When I was researching the town Ulverston and the 50 years’ period of the towns industrial revolution. I discovered the plight of the workers and the social change they tried to bring about with the Reform Bill. It was these men and women who began to bring about change and made it possible today to vote and have our say in parliament.

Candlelight Reading…: My review of Ropewalk; Rebellion. Love. Survival (The Ropewalk Series) by H D Coulter #HistoricalFiction #BookReview #BlogTour @coulter_hd @maryanneyarde (candlelightreadinguk.blogspot.com)
The second stop is over on Mary Ann Bernal blog where I share an exclusive excerpt of Ropewalk….
A handful of ladies and gentlemen stood gossiping in their finest outfits outside the Assembly rooms. Having been worried she would be overdressed, Bea soon realised hers was a relatively simple design compared to the majority of the ladies’ present. They looked like they belonged at the palace amongst royal courtiers in their lace, feathers and pearls. One of the few nights a year, the classes of Ulverston might mix even a little. This was only the second time Bea had attended a comparable social gathering. The first had been at the harvest festival two years ago, but that was far less formal, and far less impressive.
Bea and Beth carefully weaved through the crowd to the main hall, the splendour of the illuminating light issuing from the candles as it reflected off the over-polished oak panels, their honey-scented wisps of smoke smudging up the newly painted walls. The warm glow created a romantic atmosphere in the large open space, as the music of the small orchestra flowed sweetly over the dancers. They spun and swirled, every partner casting a glittering shimmer onto their neighbour’s silk finery.
