Prisoner of Grace
The first volume of the Chester Nimmo trilogy.
Bewitchingly beautiful Nina Woodville is an intelligent and sensual woman. Brought
up with her cousin, Jim Latter, she is forced into an arranged marriage at eighteen
with Chester Nimmo.
Chester pursues his political career with ﬁerce ambition while Nina, though disturbed
by his religious zeal, tries to be a
supportive wife. But mutual passion binds Nina and Jim together and their destinies
become entwined with powerfully tragic consequences.
Earthy and full-blooded, both innocent and wise, we find in Nina a woman as sensuous
as Emma Bovary, as ravaged as Anna Karenina.
“The most powerful novel he’s written.”
“Delicately ribald and unfailingly shrewd.”
“Whenever I am idle I choose a Cary novel in the way I might seek a friend’s company,
and it is not long
before I am encouraged, inspired to write.”
