9781943192007: An Untitled Lady: A Novel

Shocking family news forces Madeline Wetherby to abandon her plans to marry an earl and settle for upstart Manchester merchant Nash Quinn. When she discovers that her birth father is one of the weavers her husband is putting out of work--and a radical leader--Maddie must decide which family she truly desires, the man of her heart or the people of her blood.

An earl's second son, Nash chose a life of Trade over Society. When protest marches spread across Lancashire, the pressure on him grows. If he can't make both workers and manufacturers see reason he stands to lose everything: his business, his town, and his marriage.

As Manchester simmers under the summer sun, the choices grow more stark for Maddie and Nash: Family or justice. Love or money. Life or death.
Historical fiction with strong romantic elements. Includes scenes of violence and loss.First published in 2013

Review:

  • "The social turmoil in Manchester leading to the Peterloo Massacre of 1819 is the unusual setting for Penttila's quietly stunning, memorable debut novel. A very highly recommended book."--Historical Novel Society

  • "Penttila shows a deft hand with complex, believable characterizations that accurately reflect the historical period."--Publishers Weekly


  • "Powerful. Disturbing. Heartbreaking. Smart. Occasionally gentle, often brutal. And always enthralling. An atypical setting, an actual historical event, masterfully layered characters and a sophisticated, seamless narrative -- An Untitled Lady is a standout, gripping historical romance, unlike any Regency you've ever read."--USA Today

  • "An artful blend of history and romance."--Kirkus Reviews


  • "This book was amazing. It was like reading North & South by Gaskell all over again. The characters, the ambience, the fear, it all has that wonderful feeling that I thought I'd never experience again outside of Gaskell's work, but Nicky Penttila has just blown me away. It moved me to tears, and frustrated me, and scared me. And I loved every minute of it!"--Maggi Hesseling, Goodreads
