Soon she is taken on by a new man who is captivated by her beauty, yet he struggles to reconcile his cool nature and expectation of restraint with her irrational outbursts.

In an attempt to mold her into a suitable companion and mistress she is educated in the arts and painted by her beloved Romney.

However Emily, or Emma as she becomes, continues to struggle with the invisible societal and moral codes which ridicule her and her vivacious passion is viewed as crude and hysterical.

Can she overcome her private and personal demons to reign successful in public life?

Or has she left a trail of scandal so great that she will never be accepted?

This is an immortal tale of how Lord Nelson died at Trafalgar with Emma’s name on his lips. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Moresby, Elizabeth Louisa

Author Image

Elizabeth Louisa Moresby (1862-1931) was a Canadian novelist. She was born in England. Her father was admiral in the navy who helped explore the Australasian archipelago. During the first part of her life she lived and travelled in the Orient in such places as India, China, Burma, and Japan. She eventually settled in Victoria, B.C. where she became known as a proponent of Oriental customs and philosophy. Her experiences in Asia influenced her writing when she began to write books at the age of 60. Women authors of her time were known to write under pen-names and she produced about 30 books under such names as Lily Adams Beck, E. Barrington and Louis Moresby.
