The author's first novel, about "Lucy Pitt, [a] Latin mistress at a fashionable boarding school for young ladies [who takes] the coach north to Manchester, a journey not to be undertaken lightly in the year 1793 by an unescorted female. But Lucy was an independent young woman, with an adventurous spirit and had lived and travelled in India. However, nothing in her previous life could have prepared her for what she was to encounter, when, having endured what proved to be a nightmare journey, she arrived in Manchester only to be plunged headlong into a series of horrific events surrounding a particularly vicious parochial scandal."
