  • Information


Tracy Rees's latest novel The Elopement is an elaborately imagined historical novel full of delight and temptation, spanning the luxury and poverty of late Victorian England. A wealthy heiress . . . 1897. Rowena Blythe is wealthy, entitled and beautiful. As her twenty-fourth birthday approaches, she's expected to marry - and to marry well. An unsuitable match . . . Her parents commission a portrait of Rowena to help cement her reputation as a great society beauty.

However, Bartek, the artist's young assistant, is unlike any man Rowena has met before - wild, romantic and Bohemian.

While society at large awaits the announcement of Rowena's engagement, it is Bartek who captures Rowena's heart along with her likeness. A scandal in society . . . Rowena knows her parents would never approve of Bartek, who in their eyes is nothing but a penniless foreigner.

As her feelings grow, she has no-one to turn to.
