A high-born lady and her servant girl defy scandal with friendship and courage in this historical Scottish saga based on true events.
Veronica Hay is an acclaimed beauty, but her downward spiral begins the moment she enters a loveless marriage that removes her from her home in Edinburgh to Berwickshire. From there, she begins a luckless affair with Sir Alexander Renton which helps her to forget her longing for the fashions and energy of Edinburgh.
Her husband seeks revenge, driving Veronica’s story to a tragic end. Veronica’s adultery causes a scandal, but it might be the making of her devoted friend and maidservant, Helen Cameron, who rises to become part of Edinburgh’s New Town story all on her own.
Perfect for fans of Tessa Barclay and Dilly Court.
Praise for A Woman of Gallantry
“This engaging novel is rich in historical detail—a risp instead of a door knocker for instance—appropriately for a story based on historical events.” —Historical Novel Society
