Review this Book



Discovery: an epic tale of love, loss, and courage. When Elizabeth Gharsia’s headstrong nephew, Gabriel, joins Samuel Champlain’s 1608 expedition to establish a settlement at Quebec, he soon becomes embroiled in a complicated tribal conflict. As months turn into years, Gabriel appears lost to his family.

Meanwhile at home in France the death of her father, Luis, adds to Elizabeth’s anguish. Devastated by her loss, she struggles to make sense of his final words. Could her mother’s journals, found hidden among Luis’s possessions, provide the key to the mystery? 

The arrival of Pedro Torres disrupts Elizabeth’s world even further. Rescued from starvation on the streets of Marseille by her brother, Pedro is a victim of the brutal expulsion of his people from Spain. Initially antagonistic, will Elizabeth come to appreciate Pedro’s qualities and to understand the complexity of her family?

I was born in Sunderland and grew up in County Durham. After studying Ancient and Modern History at Sheffield University, I had a very fulfilling career teaching History and Classical Civilisation in sixth form colleges before leaving to concentrate on writing historical fiction. 'Discovery' is my second novel.

I am married with two grown-up children and now live in North Yorkshire. When not researching and writing, I enjoy travelling, hiking, and tribal dancing. Wherever possible I walk in the footsteps of my characters.
