The Malpas Legacy

For three years the Llewellyn family lived in a semi-detached castle on a crag above Southern Ireland’s Blackwater River, a place that inhabits a special space somewhere between truth and fiction. There are many stories about the people who live on this huge, mysterious waterway. In the Malpas Legacy, I have invented a river of my own: a dark river, set about with great crumbling houses, inhabited by people who have lived in isolation for so long that they can hardly remember how the normal world functions. It is a river wound about with secrets. Some of them are mildly interesting to the historian. Others, buried in locked minds and long-lost libraries, are a matter of life and death.
Particularly death.

Buy it from amazon?

  1. It is time once again to renew my subscription to Hortus, and on reflection, I find the only part of Hortus I cannot do without is your Duchess. Please tell me you’ve written a whole book about her…? Do her adventures appear in some less specialized and less expensive publication than Hortus, which I respect but do not wish to continue coughing up the equivalent of $87 per annum for?
