The Wife’s Tale
Christine Wells

With her marriage on the rocks, workaholic lawyer Liz Jones agrees to visit Seagrove, a stately home on the Isle of Wight, while she quietly investigates its provenance on behalf of a client. When she discovers Seagrove is linked to a notorious eighteenth-century court case, Liz is fascinated – not only by the house and its history, but also by its current owners.

In the winter of 1789, the infamous Delany Nash scandalised London when details of her alleged affair with her husband’s brother were aired in a public courtroom. Yet her journals reveal an extraordinary woman’s tale of passion, betrayal and heartbreak. Captivated by Delany’s story Liz delves into her research, but the more she uncovers, the more she risks jeopardising the future of everyone at Seagrove. For there are dark secrets buried beneath the rumours that surround the house, and when the truth emerges the repercussions will echo down through the centuries.

Shifting between the 1780s and the present, The Wife’s Tale is a mesmerising story of love, loyalty and sacrifice.
