Über das eBook

In The Historical Romance series, a set of stand-alone novels, Vivian Stuart builds her compelling narratives around the dramatic lives of sea captains, nurses, surgeons, and members of the aristocracy.
Stuart takes us back to the societies of the 20th century, drawing on her own experience of places across Australia, India, East Asia, and the Middle East. 
Her colleagues in the Edinburgh hospital were astounded when young Doctor Alison Graham interrupted her promising career to go and work as assistant to her G.P. Aunt Janet on a lonely island in the Outer Hebrides. But Alison, knowing or her aunt's serious illness, felt that she should do her best to try and take her place.
Alison had expected to be greeted with a certain reserve by her new patients, but she was not prepared for the undisguised hostility with which she was treated from the first. It was something far more than Scottish suspicion or a stranger — but what, and who, could be behind it?

Über den Autor

Vivian Stuart was a British writer and during her writing career she had more than 70 books published in Australia, USA and the UK.
Born in Berkshire in England, she spent most of her youth in Burma and India, and later lived in Hungary and Australia. During WWII, she served in the Women's Unit attached to the Indian Army; she is the holder of the Burma Star.
At the age of thirty-five she began to write romantic fiction but soon devoted her attention to military and historical novels.
From the warp and woof of what we call history, she has told the story of ordinary people living under the shadow of an appalling disaster, so that other ordinary people may read it with understanding, interest, and enjoyment and, perhaps, a few tears.
