Caroline's Books

These are my books about the women who inhabit my family tree - I hope you will enjoy them. As you follow their lives down the years you will discover the stories are linked, each woman being the mother or mother-in-law of the one who comes after. You can follow the narrators as they navigate the complexities of a world very different from our own. You will meet husbands and lovers, enemies and friends and by the end of each book you will meet the child who will carry the story forward to the next generation.
