Lady at the Lodge by Graham Ley


Set during the time of the French Revolution with the threat of the French invading Britain, the story on the British side set in a regency era shows the struggles of the abolitionist movement on the one side, and the personal danger two young women put themselves into unwittingly.

With all the unrest, the Wentworth family get on with their lives . Like everyone else life goes on. Sempronie part of an aristocratic Breton English family tries to settle past wrongs. She cannot envisage how the family can react. Having to face many challenges all the characters in this story try to move forward, despite outside events forcing them out of their comfort zones. Whilst Amelia is getting involved with the abolitionist movement and is supportive, we have Arabella abducted and being put in a perilous and compromising situation.

I found the story a bit complicated to follow, with complicated beginnings and ends.


  1. Lady of the Lodge sounds interesting. It does sound like it has a lot going on.

  2. This sounds interesting and I really enjoy this time period. I hadn't come across this one so I'll have to check it out.
