About the Book

When her grandfather dies, ROWENA PENTRAEGON is determined to save Gulls Walk, the family’s Elizabethan manor house, which is slowly falling into decay. In desperation, she decides to take her lawyer’s advice and rent the east wing. She imagines her future tenant will be elderly, someone who won’t mind the isolation of the lonely, rugged coastline. But the reality is utterly different. Just why has this tall, virile, obviously wealthy Spaniard come to her part of Cornwall? What does he want? And what is the secret of Gulls Walk that has remained hidden for four hundred years?

About the Author

British-born Barbara and engineer husband Gerald, have explored areas of Africa where no white woman had been; judged an international dance competition at an African Durbar; endured the kidnapping of their daughter Rachel--and thankfully, her rescue; danced at the Queen’s State Ball in Accra; played golf on the King of Nepal’s golf course; even escaped riots in Pakistan by hanging a black (the rioters’ symbolic colour) cocktail dress from the flagpole of their house. She has taught on four different continents; produced Shakespeare, acted in Shaw and written a play for 90 children. Her more recent projects have involved her in the design and construction of their home, and finally, a new church building. Now she happily lives quietly with her husband on top of a mountain in Tennessee, leaving exciting adventures to her four children.
