About the Book
Journalist Charlotte Drummond is wealthy, educated, rational—the rare independent woman in 1880s London, centre of the changing world of the British Empire. When her young cousin Amanda is kidnapped in far-away India, Charlotte uses all her resources to put together a team with special skills to help rescue her.
“I am a first-time indie author with a just-released novel. But I have worked with three different trade and academic presses on four different books over the years (I’m a historian). I say all that to say this: my contact with Jessica Bell was absolutely super. You can see her talent in her great portfolio online. Well, her approach to work is professional, efficient, gracious. She was very careful to set up a dialogue with me to understand a kind of complicated (I hope not confused) novel, and then she worked with me until she produced the exact cover I wanted (though I had never thought of anything like it). If this novel flies, I will absolutely be emailing her again. I can’t think of anyone I have run into in my years of writing who has been more professional and more impressive.”
