Sue Lawrence’s book launch for The Unreliable Death of Lady Grange was due to be held in Edinburgh last night. However as things are different at the moment the launch was moved over to the virtual world. Which means you can watch and learn more about the book in your own home. I do hope you enjoy the video, more about the book below and how you can order your own copy.
Back of the book
Edinburgh, January 1732: It’s Lady Grange’s funeral.
Her death is a shock: still young, she’d shown no signs of ill health. But Rachel is, in fact, alive and (mostly) well. She’s been brutally kidnapped by the man who has falsified her death – her husband of 25 years, a pillar of society with whom she has raised a family. Her punishment, perhaps, for railing against his infidelity – or for uncovering evidence of his treasonable plottings against the government.
Whether to conceal his Jacobite leanings, or simply to ‘replace’ a wife with a long-time mistress, Lord Grange banishes Rachel to the remote Hebridean Monach Isles, from where she’s removed again to distant St Kilda, far into the Atlantic – to an isolated life of primitive conditions, with no shared language – somewhere she can never be found.
This is the incredible and gripping story of a woman who has until now been remembered mostly by her husband’s unflattering account. Sue Lawrence reconstructs a remarkable tale of how the real Lady Grange may have coped with such a dramatic fate, with courage and grace.
