Cornish Reading Challenge: Victoria Cornwall’s Recommendations

To kick us off, author Victoria Cornwall shares her book recommendations for the Cornish Reading Challenge.

21668_10151344012638687_157951191_n-320x240Victoria Cornwall grew up on a farm in Cornwall. She can trace her Cornish roots as far back as the 18th century and it is this background and heritage which is the inspiration for her Cornish based novels.

Victoria is married, has two grown up children and a black Labrador, called Alfie. She likes to read and write historical fiction with a strong background story, but at its heart is the unmistakable emotion, even pain, of loving someone.

Following a fulfilling twenty-five year career as a nurse, a change in profession finally allowed her the time to write. She is a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association and the Historical Novel Society.

The Thief’s Daughter is her debut novel and the first in a series of Cornish based novels.
