A pedant writes; good page turner but:
hiring fairs were not held at Midsummer (busy time in the farming year) but (at different times in the 18th century) at either Lady Day or Michaelmas;
Becca wouldn't get any money wages until she had finished a complete year - until then she'd be working just for her keep;
a country girl would not consider the walk from Hamsey to Lewes at all taxing - if sent on an errand, she'd expect to walk to Lewes and back before breakfast.

Hi Clifford - don't want to take over thread but here's a quick update - It did very well. Reached the charts for thrillers and dark comedy several times - in the top twenty! I was so pleased. Lots of lovely reviews on Amazon. Also a couple of comments about my spelling - which I have now rectified (I hope).
Real life has taken over for a while - but when it stops I am looking at doing a print version - and updating the start in line with some of the comments I received here.
Thanks for asking.
Looking forward to Three Round Towers

Hi D M Stone
I am thinking of setting up a pop up shop with a couple of other local writers would you be interested? You can contact me via my website if you prefer.

Thanks Beverley. I don't know what a pop up shop is but I'll contact you to find out.

I look forward to hearing from you but I am so glad to hear you did well. I altered a lot of spelling in the proofing but then it must have slipped in at the typesetting which was a nightmare.
I have to keep reminding myself - this is story telling, fiction...
another glass of the red stuff!
