Elizabeth Edmondson (Elizabeth Aston, Elizabeth Pewsey (real name))

I write historical mysteries about love, marriage families and friendship, where the loyalties, feuds, secrets and betrayals of the past cast long shadows. I’m fascinated by characters who are quirky, mysterious, funny, unexpected and interesting and I want readers to share, as I do, in their joys and sorrows.

My aim is to enthrall, delight and amuse readers as they are transported to a different era.
