In 1880 Stuart, Lord Carrington, commissions a magnificent ruby and diamond necklace for his beautiful wife Beatrice, to celebrate the birth of their first child. However their happiness is short lived as tragedy strikes the aristocratic Carrington family. The beautiful lattice necklace is closely interwoven into a story that will span the lives of five generations of Carrington women. It is worn with pride, hidden away, lost, stolen and found again as Beatrice, Helen, Katherine, Carole and Linda face the highs and lows of their lives against the back ground of a rapidly changing Britain. Through two World Wars, the industrial revolution, the merging of the social classes and the growth of women's independence, love, loss, passion and tragedy will follow these fascinating women, until Linda finally unlocks the secrets of the Carrington family, and their story comes full circle.

Pamela was born at Cove in Hampshire, England, and was five years old when the Second World War began. At the age of twenty-one she moved to Ascot in Berkshire where she lived an exciting life in which steam engines, playing the electronic organ and teaching music played major roles. Pamela’s father had come from Canada originally and she travelled to Canada and America many times, meeting well known organists and musicians. Eventually Pamela retired to Paphos in Cyprus where she acquired seven rescued canine companions. When she was younger, Pamela had enjoyed writing amusing poems and short stories for her pupils. After three cancer operations, and facing limited mobility, she began to write her first novel, The Lattice Necklace. Pamela now lives alone, but is supported by the wonderful Cancer Patients Support Group in Paphos, and the Cyprus Samaritans. Pamela has a great sense of humour, and much of what she writes is based on her own experiences growing up in the English countryside. Pamela is delighted to have her first book published. She has just completed her second novel, and is now working hard on her fascinating autobiography.
