Grace Agbrigg has ambitions beyond merely ornamenting the home of a
rich husband. But high Victorian England is still almost wholly a
man's world in which women - rich or poor - must do the bidding of
father, husband or employer. Attracted against her will to the
ambitious and ruthless Gideon Chard, Grace instead makes the
marriage that is expected of her. But eventually she breaks free of
a relationship that is a sham to become the only divorcee in
Cullingford - and a social outcast. Set against a background of
change and unrest, of dazzling wealth cheek by jowl with bitter
poverty, The Sleeping Sword, which concludes the magnificent
Barforth saga, is an unforgettable portrait of an age as well as a
compelling story of love between two strong and determined people.
