Carol Edgerley

Author Carol Edgerleyabout this book: Born into the French aristocracy, seventeen year old Marguerite energetically refused the marriage being arranged for her by her cold and jealous mother. Sent away to a convent in Ireland to reflect on her obstinacy, she ran off with a young medical student she scarcely knew, marrying him in a clandestine ceremony in Scotland. Pursued by her enraged father threatening prosecution for his under-age daughter's abduction, the couple were obliged to leave the country.

Far from a bright future she naively imagined, she was eventually to find herself in British India with an embittered alcoholic husband, where she was to know violence, rejection and poverty before emerging as a woman determined to fight for the right to direct her own destiny.

But her independence would come at a high price...

The story of Marguerite was inspired by the life of my French great-grandmother. Albeit an English and French teacher, it took me ten re-writes before I was satisfied that the book was ready for a wide readership.
