Extract of Morwellham's Child

Read an extract from Tania Crosse's novel to gain a flavour of her lively story telling style!

"But even as he spoke, the Captain glanced swiftly in Rebecca's direction as if he simply could not take his eyes from her. Rebecca drew a seething breath through her nostrils as she watched him cross the room to take the glass from her father's hand. So, he had an eye for the girls, did he? Well, if he thought he could work his charms on her, he would have to think again! He might be tall and attractive and a fine figure of a man, but she was already spoken for! As far as she was concerned, Captain Bradley could pack his fancy ways in his sea chest and take himself back to London on the next ship!"
