The Woman in the Lake - US-Final-web.jpg

The Woman in the Lake is a book that merges multiple genres, with elements of history, mystery, crime, romance and fantasy. It is set in the 18th century and the present and draws inspiration from a number of people and places: the secret history of Swindon, the glorious Lydiard Park house and the fascinating life of Diana Beauclerk, born Lady Diana Spencer, who was one of the 18th century's most talented female artists.
