Diary of an Obstinate,

                                             testardo  femmina.
                                                                

Anchor 2 book 1

vol. 1: Baci alla vaniglia
Una stagione ritardata.
Una debuttante irregolare.
Relazioni pericolose di un tipo insolito.

- Una serie.

È il 1821 e il brillante debutto di Eleanor Ashlyn è finalmente avvenuto. Si è allenata per questo momento per tutta la sua vita e ci si aspetta che faccia un'ottima coppia, perché è una bellezza rinomata ed è stata ben istruita dai migliori tutori e maestri. Ma non è lo strascico del suo abito da cerimonia o i suoi passi di danza a farla inciampare e a mettere in gioco le sue prospettive future e la sua reputazione...

 

Non c'era stato apprendimento per prepararla a mescolarsi con le classi emergenti, o per interpretare la strana danza di Mariella nell'aranceto e come l'avrebbe distrutta, risvegliandola a parti di sé che non sapeva esistessero. Come toglierebbe splendore alle offerte della stagione e porterebbe a molto di più di quanto avrebbe mai potuto aspettarsi.

 

Il momento anticipato che dovrebbe dimostrare che sta facendo, invece la farà cadere in disgrazia?

Lontano da ciò che immaginava possibile, questa non è una stagione normale, ma Eleanor non è una normale debuttante.

Una storia di innocenza, risveglio, inganno e scandalo.

 

 Il primo volume di una serie di racconti sovversivi tratti dalla vita di una donna ostinata e testarda.

Vol. 2: Appetence. 
.A failed marriage.
A longing for escape.
An unexpected romance.

With her girlish days of blind innocence behind her and her fall from grace complete, Eleanor finds herself more than just physically bruised, as she attempts to battle through her darkest days in the aftermath of an unprecedented season.

Traumatised, friendless and alone, there seems little left to live for and even less to find meaningful occupation in as she vows never to return to her husband after his vile treatment of her.      

                                                                                                   

           Far from being where she expected to be by now; prettily situated and much at her own leisure in a marriage of comfortable convenience, Eleanor’s future has never been more uncertain.

Taking refuge at Cuddington might keep her safe from his attempts to reclaim her, but shunned from society, dropped by her friends and sinking her family into ever deeper depths of disappointment with her failures, it is a bitter sweet refuge that soon has her longing for escape.                              

Just when all seems lost and bleak, something unexpected begins to emerge from a most unlikely quarter and reminds Eleanor that life is still worth living, love is not dead and not all new acquaintances are worthy of mistrust.

Will this emerging new relationship help to restore all that was set asunder and show her what it really means to find friendship, trust and love?

- book 3


A cosy country Christmastide.

An ill-timed quest to expose injustice.

A determined pursuit that sets everything asunder.


When Eleanor and Annalise arrive at Stapleford Hall and begin to acclimatise to the slow rhythms of a secluded country life, they expect the remaining months of Eleanor’s confinement to continue as uneventfully as they began.

But then a Christmas outing sets them on an unexpected mission to seek justice for the women of Cambridgeshire who are subject to the tyranny of the University Proctors and the questionable practice of confining them to The Spinning House without reasonable cause or a fair trial.

Their quest to expose this unlawful custom leads them on a path of spontaneous adventure, new acquaintances, and a chance to test their thespian skills and new disguises.

It would be risky business in any event, but with Eleanor lying low and Giles expanding his countrywide search for her, the timing might have been better.

As the Midwinter winds set over the frost-bitten Fens, unforeseen danger begins to crystallise in the powdery snow trails of their perilous footprints.

Vol 3: Midwinter.

Volume 4: Cicisbeo.

book 4

                 An agonising separation.
                                     
                  A hard-won escape plan.
                                               
                   Unforeseen complications.



Eleanor finds herself on a ship headed to Venice with the last person in the
world she would consent to go with.

It wasn’t supposed to be like this. She should be living out her confinement in the privacy of Stapleford, and comforting arms of her lover, Annalise.

But Annalise has abandoned her at the last, and though she can scarce believe it, she has a goodbye letter in Annalise’s hand setting out the reasons she could not go with her.


How will she survive without her? Powerless and totally at the mercy of the man she loathes and who is determined to mould her into the dutiful compliant wife she has, so far, failed to be.

When they arrive in Venice to the household of Giles's uncle, Eleanor is utterly bereft. All that mattered is lost to her now. All that remains to her is perdition. She has no money, no friends to seek assistance from and no one even knows where she is.

It seems as if there is no way out and she must somehow learn to endure this new existence, but allies, most unlikely, surface and help to rekindle her fighting spirit. Though the path is neither easy nor certain, once resurrected, the possibility of escape is enough to sustain her determination to achieve it, at any cost, by any means...
​​​​​​​
However, just as the way appears, she is caught in a new conundrum that was never part of the plan and derails her intended return to England.

Sono sempre grato di ricevere feedback e recensioni.
"Un libro davvero geniale.."
"I Questo libro mi ha preso fin dall'inizio, con svolte abbastanza sorprendenti. A volte ti tiene con il fiato sospeso. Il personaggio principale ti fa simpatizzare, ma allo stesso tempo vuoi darle una bella scossa. Non posso aspetta la prossima puntata".
