Florence is a spoilt young woman shielded from the filth and poverty of Victorian London by her father’s money and status. When he suffers a spectacular fall from grace, she must abandon everything, including the man she loves, and start again in the empire’s furthest colony of New Zealand.
Compromise and suffering await Florence in her new home. Against the odds, she finds security and love. But her decision to risk everything to enjoy some of the trappings of her previous life costs her dearly. She must live with the heartbreaking consequences of the choice she has made.
As the first book in the Shaking the Tree trilogy, The Moral Compass is a sweeping historical romance that begins a journey Florence will continue in A Pivotal Right due out in July/August 2018.
