9780349404523: The House in Quill Court

1813. Venetia Lovell lives by the sea in Kent with her pretty, frivolous mother and idle younger brother. Venetia's father, Theo, is an interior decorator to the rich and frequently travels away from home, leaving his sensible and artistic daughter to look after the family. Venetia designs paper hangings and she and her father often daydream about having an imaginary shop where they would display the highest quality furniture, fabrics and art to his clients.

When a handsome but antagonistic stranger, Jack Chamberlaine, arrives at the Lovell's cottage just before Christmas bringing terrible news, Venetia's world is turned upside-down and the family have no option but to move to London, to the House in Quill Court and begin a new life. Here, Venetia's courage and creativity are tested to breaking point, and she discovers a love far greater than she could have ever imagined . . .

From the multi-award-winning author of The Apothecary's Daughter, The House in Quill Court is a gorgeously evocative Regency novel bursting with historical flavour and characters you won't forget. If you love Philippa Gregory and Joanne Harris, you will adore Charlotte Betts.

Review:

A highly-recommended novel of love, tragedy and the power of art―Daily Mail on The Painter's Apprentice

What Betts manages to do so cleverly is to combine an easy read, with only one possible outcome, with historical detail, which enlightens the reader as to customs and practices of the time. The author clearly carries out
thorough research and this shows in the richness of the pictures she paints through her words. The House in Quill Court is a satisfying and engaging book, perfect for these spring evenings, when the weather is just turning,but you need a good book to hunker down and lose yourself in.―Newbury Weekly News

Romantic, engaging and hugely satisfying―Katie Fforde on The Apothecary's Daughter

Full of passion and drama . . . I was captivated by this moving, heart-warming and beautifully woven story - gripping, atmospheric, eloquently told and full of rich detail―Kate Furnivall on The Chateau on the Lake
