Susanna Kearsley News: A Desperate Fortune

As if it isn't exciting enough waiting for Susanna Kearsley's latest release in 2013, The Firebird, she has recently revealed some new information about her latest work in progress.

From Susanna Kearlsey's blog:

"I’m calling it A Desperate Fortune (since that phrase has now leapt out at me twice from documents I’m reading for the research), and it has a twin-stranded storyline that involves modern-day codebreakers, Jacobite cyphers, real history, a road trip, a sharpshooting bodyguard, Paris and Rome."

I'm sure Kearsley will do a wonderful job of creating a sense of time and place in the beautiful settings of Paris and Rome; she has a real gift for recreating locations.

 Exciting news!
