Web of Deceit Welcome

Welcome to my world of historical fiction on ebook. WEB OF DECEIT is a step into the refined world of 1890 London and New York Society where deceit, treachery, murder and above all incalculable ambition reside. 

Amanda Granger is only a servant in the house of Lord and Lady Kent in London, but because she’s shown a quick wit and brilliant mind to Lord Kent, he’s allowed her to become not only the companion to his daughter, Eloise, but has provided for tutors for Amanda as well. By the time she is fourteen, she is as well read and mannered as his daughter. However, she is too beautiful and Lady Kent does everything in her power to rid the family of Amanda’s presence.

Amanda’s mother, Harriet, the former housekeeper in Lord Kent’s house, concocts a plan to send Amanda to New York where she will live with an old friend of hers, Sylvia Hendrickson. They spread the lie that Amanda has royal blood. Sylvia, being American has never been constrained by class. Sylvia married well when she was young and is now very connected in New York. Sylvia takes Amanda under her wing and within weeks, the town is talking about the astonishingly beautiful, Amanda Grander. 

Amanda marries David Simon, an ambitious and conniving man. He wants Amanda to be his model to make him as famous as Dana Gibson, the creator of the famous, “Gibson Girl.”

The world that Amanda inhabits glitters with luxury and false promises. When she meets and falls in love with wealthy and prominent businessman, Matthew Wade, Amanda loses her heart completely. When she discovers he is married, she is crushed. Matthew and his wife live separate lives, but Sydney Wade will never let him go and she used every underhanded trick to keep him. But she will never have his heart. 

Amanda realizes she can’t be wife to any man until she makes a mark in the world for herself. No longer satisfied with being an artist’s model, she realizes she wants to write about the challenges that face women in New York in the 1890’s—sweat shops; birth control; voting rights. 

So, come with me through this carriage ride down the gas lit streets of New York to the social event of the fall season. WEB OF DECEIT will enthrall you with a long-ago world when women were first having their social-issue voices be heard through the pages of women’s magazines, like Amanda Granger’s “City Woman.”

A Passion she could not deny—A lie she could never escape—

From the depths of a London slum, Amanda Granger created an illusion of wealth and breeding that became her passport into New York society. With her dazzling beauty and the ease with which she lived her lie, Amanda captivated an adoring public and drove men to bold and dangerous passions.

But for all her fierce ambition, all her daring dreams, Amanda Granger knew that her heart’s desires were held together by the fragile threads of deception and secrets. Triumph would always be elusive until she escaped from her web of deceit.
