Naseby: This Phantom Ground chronicles the lives of the Eachelhursts and the Wellbeloveds. The intertwining of past and present play a crucial part in the lives of all involved. James Eachelhurst, a Major in Cromwell's New Model Army, finds a new life in Wychwood, as does Katherine Anderton in modern times. Religion and politics play integral parts of the characters' lives. A passionate belief in their cause makes the opposing armies exceedingly brutal and bitter foes. There is no pity; revenge is instant and bloody. Events occur that change England forever. The saviour is the deep abiding love of family life. Audrey's first book in The Battle Trilogy, Talavera: Tongued with Fire, was set in the present and the Regency period. Naseby, the second book, is about the period she finds most fascinating. The outcome of the English Civil War affected not only England but, over the course of time, Parliamentary Democracy worldwide.

Audrey's other book. Talavera

The discovery of an old portrait of a Cavalry Officer in the uniform of Regency times, changes Audrey Hunter’s life for ever. The past reaches out to her with an intensity she cannot possibly ignore. The secure tranquility of her pleasant family life is threatened.  She must find depths of courage such as she never imagined she could possess. To be without the golden soldier boy whose love searches for her through time seems to be an impossible decision.

From the bloody battlefields of the Napoleonic Wars, to elegant Regency Ballrooms, from the hell of Bedlam, to the quite peace of the Dowers House, the ingenious plot intertwines past and present in the tale of a passion that must cross the centuries to achieve fulfillment
