The Light of Scarthey  Historical Novel

At the beginning of the 19th century, the era of Napoleonic campaigns covered the whole of Europe, causing turbulence even in the most distant and peaceful plots of land as the island of Chartley. The two opposing countries needed gold and silver for their armies, and the seas around these lands quickly became the domain for smugglers and adventure-seekers. This situation shapes the course of life of the main protagonist by introducing unexpected events and people. The main character, Adrian Landale, the master and light-keeper of Scartley, lives two distinct yet connected love stories in his life. First, as a young man, he meets beauty to fall in love with. Then, as fate separates them for years, he meets her again, her face looking young and fresh as if not touched by time. How was it possible? Was that the same woman, and what was her story?
