Historical Fiction

Sentenced to death for a simple confidence trick, Mary Jebb escapes the gallows ... but her reprieve is harsh: seven years in the penal colony of Botany Bay. Yet Mary is determined not to be forgotten, sending two pennies, engraved with a promise, to the men who sealed her fate. Artist Grace Moore jumps at the opportunity to marry handsome Michael Croxon – if only to get away from her drunken father. But when Grace takes on a new cook, the two penny heart love tokens reveal she is tied to a world of deceit, double-crossing, revenge and murder.
