‘A great read, a moving story of family history, love deception, passion and heartbreak’ Cornwall Today Two women, living more than a hundreds years apart yet against the same wild backdrop of sea and landscape, make a rash bid for freedom to live another life. But for both of them, that choice means a loss which will greatly affect the next generation.. When marine historian Mark Hannah finds a hauntingly beautiful figurehead in Newfoundland, he traces her ship, The Lady Isabella, back to Cornwall. There he meets Gabrielle Ellis, the woman who will restore her to her former glory. Together they begin to piece together the lives of the carver, Tom Welland and the real Lady Isabella. Surrounded by the rugged Cornish landscape, Gabrielle becomes increasingly haunted by Isabella's lost life. As Gabrielle's own life becomes inextricably involved with Mark's, her story runs parallel with the lives of Isabella, her husband Richard and Tom Welland, the carver.
