The second volume of The Herries Chronicle, which recounts the dramatic fortunes of one family from the eighteenth to the early twentieth century, in a magnificent Lake District setting. Here is fiction in glorious, sweeping measure, set against wild and beautiful scenery and crowded with fairs, balls, weddings, duels, witches, abductions, murder and romance.
Set in Revolutionary Paris and in the unforgettably romantic Cumbrian hamlet of Watendlath, Judith Paris is the story of the daughter of Francis Herries and Mirabell Starr and the two men who love her. As impetuous, impulsive and passionate as her father, she is torn between her ambition and her love of the wild beauty of the Lakes. Judith Paris is by turns comic and moving, tragic and triumphant.
