She has compiled reference books for the Glasgow & West of Scotland Family History Society and has published articles in genealogical journals. She has always enjoyed classical music, particularly opera. Since childhood, many holidays have been spent with a family in central France, initially with ‘walking water’. Before she was married, she lived in Yorkshire for some years.
Janet Fraser, a promising young pianist, visits her mother’s family home in the Yorkshire dales where she is transported back to the early nineteenth century and her ancestors mistake her for a daughter of the house who had eloped some years previously.
