The Fleece Inn stood where the three roads joined-to London, to Norwich and to the sea. Its trade was prosperous, its


hospitality famous and its host, fat Job, was jolly and generous-to his guests.


To his servants Job was cruel and menacing and to Ellie Roon, the most menial servant at the Fleece, he was a figure of


terror. Ellie was used to being shouted at and bullied, but when her illegitimate daughter was born-in a rat-ridden attic of the


Fleece-she decided that Hester must have a different kind of life.


And so Hester Roon, equipped with little more than courage and a strong will, began her eventful progress in the harsh


world of 18th century England. After fleeing from the inn, she became involved in the London underworld. From there she


was to find herself a destiny far beyond her imaginings.

Norah Lofts was one of the best-known and best-loved of all historical novelists, known for her authentic application of period detail to all her books. She was a bestselling author on both sides of the Atlantic. She was born in Norfolk and taught English and History at a girls' school before turning to writing full time in 1936. Her passion for old houses and their continuing history sparked off her much-praised Suffolk trilogy, "The Town House", "The House at Old Vine" and "The House at Sunset". These were followed by the best-selling "The Concubine", "The King's Pleasure", a novel about the life of Katharine of Aragon and "Eleanor the Queen", a novel about the life of Eleanor of Aquitaine. Lofts wrote more than 50 books, including historical non-fiction and short stories.
