Today we are stopping off at two great blog sites, The Historical Fiction Blog and Celtic Lady Reviews.
First Stop is over on The Historical Fiction Blog by Mercedes Rochelle.
I was asked to write a guest post, where I discussed how Ulverston became another character in the novel. To use the historical setting to enhance, not dominate, the story.
How the Ulverston became its own character.
I would like to thank Mercedes Rochelle for allowing to guest post on her Historical Fiction blog as I discuss how the historical town Ulverston became its own character in Ropewalk: Rebellion. Love. Survival.
“Ulverston, a small town crammed on to the side of an estuary, stood shielded by ancient fells. Whilst the growing high tide covered the last few remaining pieces of the decaying disused pier, a time before industrial advancement branded its mark on the area.”
I set book 1, Ropewalk during a year of 1831, in Ulverston, a small town on the Leven Estuary, south to Lake District. I lived in the town whilst the idea of the novel flourished in my mind, with the landmarks and history fuelling the plot.

Ropewalk: Rebellion. Love. Survival
The North of England, 1831.
The working class are gathering. Rebellion is stirring, and the people are divided.
Beatrice Lightfoot, a young woman fighting her own personal rebellion, is looking for an opportunity to change her luck. When she gains the attention of the enigmatic Captain Hanley, he offers her a tantalising deal to attend the May Day dance. She accepts, unaware of the true price of her own free will.
Her subsequent entanglement with Joshua Mason, the son of a local merchant, draws all three into a destructive and dangerous relationship, which threatens to drag Beatrice, and all she knows into darkness.
Now, Beatrice must choose between rebellion, love and survival before all is lost, and the Northern uprising changes her world forever.
