The Danbury Scandals

The Danbury Scandals

Mary Nichols


whilst Maryanne Paynter is ten, her cherished mom dies and she or he is taken by means of her nice uncle to reside with the Reverend Mr Cudlipp at Beckford. Her lifestyles is unexceptional until eventually, a bit ahead of her twenty-first birthday, Viscount Danbury takes her to fort Cedars, the rustic property of the Duke of Wiltshire the place she is taken to work out the Dowager Duchess, a frail, bedridden previous girl who's it seems that frightened to make her acquaintance. livid with the best way she is handled Maryanne runs from the home, basically to fall into the fingers of a mysterious guy jogging in the course of the woods who turns out strangely attracted to the occupants of chateau Cedars. She is not sure even if he's a gypsy, a poacher or an escaped prisoner of struggle, for the battle with Napoleon has simply ended with the dictator’s defeat and imprisonment of the island of Elba.
Later, she learns that her mom was once the daughter of the 5th Duke of Wiltshire, who disowned her whilst she married a guy of whom they disapproved. yet now the previous guy is useless and the dowager is worried to convey Maryanne again into the relatives. rather than returning to the rectory, she is to stay with Viscount Danbury and his son, Mark, and spoiled daughter, Caroline.
It is the start of a brand new and bewildering lifestyles, no longer made more straightforward by means of previous scandals and the occasional reappearance of the exciting guy she met within the wooden, who turns out to have a string of pseudonyms and disguises. there's secret and probability, a suggestion and extra scandal and Maryanne, within the thick of it, doesn't recognize whom to belief. Mark or the fellow who calls himself variously le Choucas, Jack Daw or Adam St Pierre?
