No Mans Moor

The population of Great Britain is struggling with the economic impact of the newly ended Napoleonic Wars and a mystifyingly cold spring threatens to destroy the crops and harvests.

Fordy Robson, living at Worlds End Inn on the remote No Mans Moor in the North Riding of Yorkshire, naïvely believes the problems facing the nation won’t affect him. With an established lucrative side line dealing in smuggled goods and ambitions to expand his horse breeding enterprise, he thinks he has his future planned out.

However, one dark night while out collecting contraband tea he stumbles across a young woman. Initially unaware she is Anna, daughter of Sir Robwyn Stillerton, owner of the estate where the smuggling is based, he finds events and feelings develop beyond his control and Fordy begins to realise there is a price to pay for everything in life.

World End

Julia's fascination with the old abandoned property on No Mans Moor Lane runs deep. Not only is it her own sanctuary from the stresses of her farming life and unhappy marriage but she believes another young woman from the past haunts the house.

So when a buyer appears for Mile End House Julia fears the loss of her safe haven and is concerned the new owners will destroy the house's history.

But the purchaser is Johnny, an old friend of her husband's. Retired from the army, he is sympathetic towards Mile End's past and enlists Julia to help him renovate it. As they strike up a friendship they discover it used to be called Worlds End and begin to uncover the house's secrets.

The closer Johnny and Julia get to the truth, the closer they become to each other and Julia finds herself facing hard choices if she wants to fulfil her ambitions and resolve her own problems as well of those of Worlds End's resident ghost.
