From the multi-award-winning author of The Apothecary's Daughter, The Light Within Us is the beginning of a beautifully evocative, multi-generational family drama set at the turn of the century and perfect for fans of Elizabeth Jane Howard, Santa Montefiore and Lucinda Riley. The... trilogy follows talented painter Edith Fairchild, passionate in love and determined in her pursuit of artistic excellence, as she matures from an idealistic bride to the matriarch of a community. ____________________________ In the golden afternoon of the turn of the century, Edith establishes an artists' community in Cornwall with her husband Benedict and their friends Clarissa, Dora and old flame, Pascal. But despite their dreams of an idyllic way of life creating beauty by the sea, all is not perfect within their tight-knit community, and secrets threaten to tear apart their paradise. While Dora sacrifices her art to take on an unexpected challenge, Clarissa's reckless actions result in an illegitimate baby. And when Benedict cruelly abandons Edith, she finds she cannot divorce him if she is to keep her home and children. Throughout it all, Pascal supports Edith as she fights to ensure their community's future. But what, or who, will she have to sacrifice to fulfil her dream? __________________________ Praise for The Apothecary's Daughter: 'A vivid tale of love in a time of fire, plague and prejudice' - Katherine Webb, bestselling author of THE LEGACY 'Romantic, engaging and hugely satisfying. This is one of those novels that makes you feel like you've travelled back in time' - Katie Fforde 'A colourful story with a richly-drawn backdrop of London in the grip of plague. A wonderful debut novel' - Carole Matthews
