The Stuff of Dreams


Rich, romantic storytelling marks Eileen's magical new novel.

A fire.
A scandal.
A famous actor is dead and his lover, a famous actress, is arrested...

Years later, Abbots House is rebuilt, and a mysterious woman who hides her face and talks to no one lives there.  Rumours fly through the Scottish seaside village. 

Kate Buchanan can't leave her tragic past behind - nor can she remember what actually happened that fateful night.

Now, though, snatches of her memory start to return - and an epic love story spanning two decades returns to haunt the woman who survived.

The impoverished Balgowan estate on the east coast of Scotland is suffering from the restrictions forced upon it due to the interminable war with Napoleon. The beautiful Liddy Carpenter, and her sisters, are desperate for the few luxuries which women, in their position in society, deserve: primarily scented soap and fine clothes. Liddy, in her desperation, invents a daring scheme to smuggle goods into England from France. When her lifelong friend, and secret love, Keir, Lord Pittenmuir, joins the motley crew of smugglers in his guise of local servant, Liddy is unaware of his real identity and suspects he may be the spy who is filtering secrets to the French. Amidst the crumbling facade of the Balgowan estate and the sumptuous elegance of the Pittenmuir household, Liddy finds her emotions are in turmoil as she discovers just how far love and loyalty can be tested to the full...
Of course true love and honour win the day.
