The chocolate maker's wife : a novel / Karen Brooks.


A lush, fascinating story of the beautiful woman who is drawn into a world of riches, power, intrigue...and chocolate. Rosamund Tomkins, illegitimate daughter of a nobleman, spends most of her young life in drudgery. To her, the Restoration under Charles II, is but a distant threat as she works under the watchful eye of her brutal, abusive stepfather - until the day she is nearly run over by the coach of Sir Everard Blithman. Sir Everard, a canny merchant, offers Rosamund an "opportunity like no other," allowing her to escape into a very different life, becoming the linchpin that will drive the success of his fledgling business: a luxurious London chocolate house where wealthy and well-connected men come to see and be seen.
