Overview

What secrets hide beneath the veil? When her mother departs for a tour of the continent, Georgina is sent from the rural backwaters to stay with her cousin, George Talbot, in London. The 1835 season is at its height, but Georgina is determined to attend neither balls nor plays, and to eschew Society. She hides her face beneath an impenetrable veil. Her extraordinary appearance only sets off gossip and speculation as to her identity. Who is the mysterious lady beneath the veil?

Amory Balfour attracts the same kind of unwelcome attention. The son of slaves, adopted and educated by a wealthy white couple, he is now a prosperous businessman, respected by his peers but still distrusted because of the colour of his skin.

Can Georgina and Amory help each other to overcome the stigma of being different?

The Lady in the Veil continues the story of the Talbots in The House in the Hollow, but stands equally well alone.
