The House in Quill Court

House in Quill Court mmpb cover

1813. Venetia Lovell lives by the sea in Kent with her pretty, frivolous mother and idle younger brother. Venetia’s father, Theo, is an interior decorator to the rich and frequently travels away from home, leaving his sensible and artistic daughter to look after the family. Venetia designs paper hangings and she and her father often daydream about having an imaginary shop where they would display the highest quality furniture, fabrics and art to his clients.

When a handsome but antagonistic stranger, Jack Chamberlaine, arrives at the Lovell’s cottage just before Christmas bringing terrible news, Venetia’s world is turned upside-down and the family have no option but to move to London, to the House in Quill Court and begin a new life. Here, Venetia’s courage and creativity are tested to breaking point, and she discovers a love far greater than she could have ever imagined . . .

  1. I just found your books and I LOVE them. Why aren’t The House at Quill Court and The Chateau on the Lake available for Kindle in the US? Thanks!

    • I’m so pleased you like my books! I’ve just taken a look at the US Amazon website and they all seem to be there, if you input my name. There is a short story called The Milliner’s Daughter, which is Arabella’s side of the story and then there is The Spice Merchant’s Wife – the last of the seventeenth century stories. Do look at Thank you so much for taking time to comment, Susan.

      • Thanks for answering Charlotte. The two books are there but there are no US Kindle versions. Paperbacks are available for both and audible recording for one. I’m dying to read them so I think I’ll go with the audible for one and paperback for the other.

        • Ah, yes – I see now i misread your question. I don’t know why this is. Unfortunately my books don’t have a US publisher but I’ll make enquiries to see if I can find out any more. If I have good news i’ll come back to you.
