As of 2011, Cornwell had sold more than 20 million books worldwide and he revels in telling historical novels packed full of intrigue and charm. A Crowning Mercy is a rollicking tale of romance and adventure set in the 17th century. The CD audiobook is set in England in the pretty Dorset countryside and focuses on the life of a young girl who falls in love with a mysteriously captivating stranger while bathing in a local stream.
We follow the young girl named Dorcas as she is unbearably ripped apart from her true love only to be forced into marrying an intolerable suitor. Dorcas desperately flees her life in search of her unknown father and her lover with only the help of a magical gold pendant left to her by her father. The pendant is encrusted with gleaming precious stones and Cornwell draws us into Dorcas’s life as we realise the jewellery holds more than just sentimental value.
But can Dorcas find all four of the puzzling pendants and what will happen when she does?
In this intriguing collection of audiobooks on CD, A Crowning Mercy is read by Anna Bentinck as she takes us on a journey of love, wealth and magical secrets that will soon see one girl’s life change forever.
