Turning the Stones: Debra Daley

Speaker:

Georgian England, mid-18th century. As a foundling the young Em Smith is brought to the Cheshire country home of the ambitious Waterland family, where she serves as a companion to their daughter Eliza. Em is increasingly troubled by the mystery of her identity and the vulnerability of her position. When Eliza goes in pursuit of a husband and a fortune in London, a terrifying sequence of events will force Em to prove her mettle and make her own destiny. She finds herself implicated in a horrific crime and must flee for her life onto the high seas.
