Sometimes actions can be more poisonous than any fruit, especially when dark magick is involved…
Arabella Cuthbert lives in a magickal world where females aren’t valued. Her future includes a husband, children, and endless days tending house unless Arabella can prevent it.
When the young Spelltwister stumbles across a name in an ancient tome, it leads her to the crotchety proprietress of White’s Antiquities and her malus malum. Esther White reveals a way for Arabella to have everything she’s ever wanted—fill the bad apple with the souls of seven evil men.
The task makes Arabella question everything she’s worked for, but has she bitten off more than she can chew from the rotten apple? Is it too late to change things again?

Although Bitter Fruit isn't historical fiction, it does contain elements of history. First, the tale takes place in the Victorian era. Second, there are events which are definitely an alternative interpretation of history. Lots of research went into this story, and I enjoyed every minute of it.
As the driver scurried past us, it was then that I realized why Mother accepted Mr. Wigglesby’s proposal. They were two kindred souls. Both of them were society maddists desiring status and wealth. His chimney-sweeping business did well, but it didn’t make him royalty, while Mother enjoyed dressing the part of a baron’s wife. May they live a long and prosperous life together.
