Product description

Review

A first-rate historical romance: it's hard to think it will be bettered this year (INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)

This is an intelligent portrait of England in the early 18th century, as experienced by a remarkable young woman (THE TIMES)

What makes THE ALCHEMIST'S DAUGHTER more than a routine entertainment is McMahon's vivid sense of both the natural world and of the smells and illuminated darkness of Selden's workroom. We believe in Emilie and come to love her for all her follies, because she is so passionate in her experience of the world around her (INDEPENDENT) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Katharine McMahon is the author of ten novels, including The Alchemist's Daughter and The Crimson Rooms, that focus on astonishing women and their ability to find a voice and make a mark, even at times and in societies when they are risking everything. The Rose of Sebastopol was a Richard & Judy pick and a Sunday Times bestseller. http://www.katharinemcmahon.com --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
