What is The Bartlemas Anthology?
Spanning the Victorian Era from 1842 to 1886, The Bartlemas Anthology is a series of novels telling breathtaking stories of love and passion.
As the wild and carefree Georgian period comes to an end in England, a circus horseman and a lady’s maid begin something that becomes the catalyst for an astonishing series of events. From the harsh effects of the burgeoning Industrial Revolution in rural England, to the wild goldfields, the searing deserts and the remote river towns of colonial Australia, one scandalous union is all it takes to set in motion the most extraordinary tales of love and adventure imaginable.
