Sarah’s Story – Helen Susan Swift

In 19th century Isle of Wight, Sarah Bembridge sets on a journey of adventure and misadventure. With Napoleon Bonaparte just across the channel, poised to invade, Sarah has other things on her mind.

With a shipwrecked sailor in her mother’s inn, a volunteer officer in her bed and a mysterious visitor who may be a French spy, Sarah strides from one complication to the next as she seeks a suitable husband.
