about this book: Stella is the gripping story of one woman's struggle to adjust to life following the bankruptcy of her husband. Set in Oxford towards the end of the nineteenth century, Stella and James are contently residing in the grand Sunny Meadow ancestral home of the Headly family on Headington Hill, just on the outskirts of Oxford. With her dislike for Claudia Wiggins who has been the house keeper for twenty five years, Stella confides in her young maid, Hetty. Claudia has been infatuated with the mature James Headly since her first meeting with him, and will go to almost any measure to gain his affections. Forced to sell their beautiful home, James travels to London in search of work. It is there where he is viciously attacked, robbed, and left for dead. Taking advantage of the situation, the malevolent Claudia, finds that her lifetime dream could come true, as she begins her deception. Stella's life is thrown into turmoil when she discovers that she is with child shortly before learning the news that she is a widow. With the help of Hetty, Glorious Bakes is opened in Oxford's High Street, and Stella's fear of ending up in the dreaded workhouse disappears, although life is still not without its complications and traumas.
