In The Shadow Of Croft Towers
by Abigail Wilson
Sybil is directed by Mrs. Chalcroft to deliver letters, in the middle of the night, to several people in the town. What is in these letters and could she possibly be a spy for the French who is at war with England?
When several of the people who had been on the couch with Sybil are murdered, she is more determine than ever to get to the truth. Is there anyone that she can trust?
Sybil had been educated at a very respectable institution. An unknown benefactor had been paying her tuition. Is Lord Stanton her benefactor and could he possibly be her father? Her main reason for coming to CroftTowers had been to find out information about her parents.
With murderers, smugglers and spies on the loose, no one in Regency, England is what they claim? Will Sybil learn who her parents were and who the traitor is?
The book is a well-written story of betrayal, a little mystery, smuggling and treason.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book and recommended to all readers.
