Praise for Ropewalk
“I am a historical romance/fiction nerd. I admit it, fully. And very rarely do I find a historical fiction novel that I completely gush over. Ropewalk is one of those rare gems of the genre. I love novels that delve deep into the characters, using the historical setting to enhance, not dominate, the story. With every page of this book, I was drawn deeper and deeper into a world of class divides, love, and hardship, but also of hope for a better tomorrow and future. Beatrice blew me away with her perseverance in the face of adversity. You can certainly tell that the author was invested in her characters completely. Please note, there is one scene that may cause distress, but I feel that it was wholly necessary for the storyline, so please don’t let that stop you from picking up the novel! I cannot wait for book two in the series. I HIGHLY recommend Ropewalk to any historical fiction fan.“

“There is heartbreak, love, horror and fear, everything that belongs in a book and then some. If it’s good enough that my exterior made my husband want to take the book away from me, it’s obviously one that you need to get your hands on immediately, if not sooner.”
