Read full description of the books:
After years of shameful exile in Holland, Sir Alexander St Barbe is back in Somerset to claim Wintercombe as his inheritance.
Bitter quarrels break out on the night of his arrival - and soon the old fires of family passions and religious contention are raging. Even Alex's aunt Silence Hellier, herself once mistress of Wintercombe, cannot smooth over the ensuing rifts.
And she is one of the first to see trouble in the instant frisson between the libertine alex and his young and fiery half-French cousin Louise ...
Outside forces play an increasingly turbulent part in all their lives as the Duke of Monmouth returns to England to claim the crown and raise rebellion - bringing disaster and tragedy to Somerset, and the St. Barbe family.

Read information about the authorBelle, who also writes contemporary fiction as Alice Marlow, always wanted to be an author. As a child the books she read were adventure stories like "Treasure Island," "Swallows and Amazons," and the novels of John Buchan and CS Forester. She wrote her first book at the age of twelve and having visited the site of a lovely Elizabethan manor house called Rushbrooke and observing the bare, moated island which was all that was left, she wanted to bring Rushbrooke back and chose to do so in print.
Over the next few years 'The Epic', as it became known, grew and grew. Belle drew up a huge family tree and a plan of the house very like Rushbrooke.
Married and a teacher of a class of six-year-olds, she wrote in longhand and, while publishers made encouraging noises, no one was prepared to risk publishing a large book by an unknown author. Eventually the agent Vivienne Schuster was wonderfully enthusiastic about it and found a publisher.
"The Moon in the Water" and its two sequels were published in the UK and the USA with considerable success. Belle gave up teaching in 1985 to spend more time researching and writing. She plans to write a book about Alfred the Great if she can fit it in between looking after the children, dogs, cats and husband.
