APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
You know how Victorian novels sometimes forget that not everybody in 19th-century England was frolicking about in morning coats and silk petticoats? That’s definitely not the case with Rowena Summers’ passionate, class-conscious love story. Morwen Tremayne is the daughter of a hardworking pit captain at Killigrew Clay, the biggest fine-china manufacturer in Cornwall. She was once close childhood friends with Ben Killigrew, the factory owner’s son…and when they meet again as adults, that spark of friendship explodes into flames of desire. But the class differences already troubling their blossoming romance threaten to tear them apart when a long-simmering conflict boils over into a dangerous workers’ strike. The swoon-worthy first novel in the Cornish Clay series delivers everything we want in a historical romance, from swashbuckling adventure (including a devilishly handsome pirate!) to lush period details. Enjoy the steamy romance and the gripping, high-stakes drama.
