Dear Reader,

Nell Gwynn rose from poverty to become a beloved comic actress and mistress of Charles II. Her rags-to-riches odyssey takes the reader through the newly-opened London theatres, the last plague epidemic, the Great Fire of 1666, and the licentious court.

To win one of four signed copies of THE DARLING STRUMPET and a jar of home-made Nell Gwynn's Orange Compote, please email me by May 9 at and tell me about a dream that you haven't yet made real – but swear you will!

Thanks for reading,
Gillian Bagwell
