In the Shadow of Croft Towers

Wilson, Abigail
When Sybil Delafield's coach to Croft Towers was robbed by highwaymen she should have realized that her new position as companion to old Mrs. Chalcroft would be no ordinary job. Upon Sybil's arrival Mrs. Chalcroft sneaks into her room in the dark of night imploring her to relay messages to town that are to stay hidden from the rest of the family. Who exactly is she working for and what do the messages contain? When fellow passengers of the robbed coach are later murdered Sybil's hunt for the truth takes on a new urgency. The only person she can rely on is Mr. Sinclair Mrs. Chalcroft's godson but under all his charms he too leads a double life. Sybil must decide if he is the one honest voice she can trust or if he is simply using her for his own advances. With murderers smugglers and spies on the loose nothing--and no one--in Regency England is what they claim. Can Sybil even trust what she knows about herself? --
