Lady Sarah Lennox arrives at Holland House and at just fourteen years old is swept into society and hailed as the beauty of London.
She is fated to catch the eye of the young Prince of Wales, the future King George III, and they begin a romance which is as all-consuming to the young lovers as it is forbidden by George’s advisers when he ascends to the throne.
For Sarah’s political connections make her an unsuitable choice in the eyes of the King’s controlling mother, Augusta Saxe-Gothe, and Sarah begins the battle that will engage in her whole life – to find love in the face of enormous odds.
Amid the turmoil of her royal romance, Sarah has disturbing visions – a young woman with flame-red hair appears at her bedroom door one night, and this ‘ghost’ makes itself known at crucial moments throughout her life.
Sidonie Brooks, a talented musician who specialises in the eighteenth-century harpsichord, moves into a flat near to Holland House in the late twentieth century.
There she begins to have strange, inexplicable episodes in which she seems to step through time and witness the life and intrigues of a beautiful young woman.
Sidonie is just beginning to reach a new level in her career, even as she is torn between her handsome neighbour, Dr Finnan O’Neill, and the Russian musical prodigy Alexei Orlov, and as she tries to unravel the mystery of her visions of Sarah Lennox.
As Sarah’s life of romance and scandal begins to interweave with Sidonie’s musical and romantic awakening, the two young women will find their lives running along extraordinary parallels, as they both seek the ultimate happiness of love.
‘As Shadows Haunting’ is a sweeping, romantic historical novel, bringing to life the eighteenth century through the haunting tale of Lady Sarah Lennox.
