Nicola Cornick was born in Yorkshire, England, within a stone's throw of the moors that had inspired the Bronte sisters to write Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. One of her grandfathers was a poet. With such a background it was impossible for Nicola not to become a writer. 

Nicola studied history at London University and has done a variety of jobs, from sticking price tags on shoes in a factory to serving refreshments on a steam railway. She lived for seven years in a cottage haunted by the ghost of a cavalier. It was here that she wrote her first historical romance for Mills & Boon. Since then she has written more than 15 novels for Mills & Boon (reedited by Harlequin), and been nominated for a number of awards including the British Romance Prize by the Romantic Novelists' Association, and RITA by the Romance Writers of America, and a Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice award. She is a Membership Secretary for the RNA and critique manuscripts for aspiring authors via the RNA's New Writers' Scheme, and also for the RWA Beau Monde mentor scheme.



The Winter Garden by Nicola Cornick does what I love about historical fiction. It teaches me something new in history. I read the story and am off to search nonfiction sources for the actual history. I have, of course, heard of Guy Fawkes and Bonfire Night. However, I had never before heard of Robert Catesby and his role in this history. The fact that the fiction is from the perspective of the women leaves me wondering of the actual women of this history and if anything is written of their roles and contributions.

This was 3.5 stars for me. I really enjoyed both storylines. I haven't been as interested in Tudor novels but I thought this one was quite good. I was very invested in the story and had a hard time putting it down. I found some of the history very interesting and was shocked that girls were "married" as young as 5 years old. There were a few mentions of witches and enchantments which made me a bit apprehensive as to where the book was going which is why I didn't give it 4 stars, but it didn't really get too deep into that, it was there to explain the time travel. (which I don't think is a spoiler since it's one of the genres of the book). There were a few uses of mild profanity and a few uses of blasphemy. There was also one VERY brief open door scene. It was just a few sentences and didn't go into to much detail.

17th Century London and Rose Cassell is in prison awaiting her fate or the whim of her infamous sister Nell Gwyn, implicated in a plot to steal the Crown jewels Rose's life is forfeit. However fate brings Rose to Becote Manor near Oxford where she finds contentment and love. Modern day London and Jess is trying to lie low after a scandal involving her ex, that's not easy when your sister is a TV celebrity. however Tavy does offer Jess a lifeline, to act as housekeeper at Fortune Hall, the mansion she is restoring.
This is a very lightweight novel which does have historical background but which wears history very light. For that reason I didn't love it as much as like it. The plot is simple and the characters endearing enough, I could even cope with the slight hint of supernatural visions etc. It's a perfectly pleasant way to spend a few undemanding hours.

I love "A Handful of Gold" by Mary Balogh, it's one of my most favourite Christmas short stories. Nothing realistic here, but so cute and sweet!
