The Young Widow

An Ambition & Destiny Novel

About the Book

Inspired by the compelling family history of author VL McBeath, The Young Widow is a standalone story in The Ambition & Destiny Series.

She has the money to live like a lady … but there are plenty who want to take it from her. When an enigmatic stranger steals her heart, can she know he wants her for the right reasons?

Widowed at the age of twenty, Ann has no optimism for the future. At the beck and call of her domineering mother she longs to make a new life for herself. But it’s not that easy.

Her world is turned upside down when a curious gentleman stops to speak to her. He’s new to the area but seems to know a lot about her … and he certainly looks well-to-do. Could he be her saviour?

With newfound hope Ann dares to dream.

As their friendship grows, there are those who want to keep them apart … but when Ann learns of his past, she realises that only she can decide what their future holds.

Set in Georgian-era London, forty years before the start of this historical family saga, The Young Widow adds another dimension to this epic series.
