The Ranee's Tears
The Major Meets His Match
Martha Grey, having escaped the hard work of being a companion and nurse to the late Marcia Gilbert, leaves Seacliffe. On her journey, illness, a simple case of mistaken identity and a plea for help, lead her to make a decision. Will she be able to help? And what will be the outcome of Changing Places?
Born in London, Sarah Jefferson spent her childhood on a farm in Herefordshire. She received most of her schooling in Sussex and later attended the Sorbonne (Universite de Paris). Then she then took a secretarial course, as most girls did in those days, and worked as a secretary in London. Subsequently she was fortunate enough to make an extended visit to India, which she loved, and then back to boring secretarial work to pay for it. Tiring of that, she emigrated to Canada, arriving in Montreal, Quebec, where Sarah felt immediatley at home and stayed for over forty years. To begin with she earned her living by secretarial work but gradually moved to office management and on to selling office equipment. Sarah feels the best thing she ever did was retire.
Sarah has travelled widely in North America, Mexico, the Caribbean and Continental Europe and all the time she was formulating her stories. She is much inspired by the late great Georgette Heyer, Jane Aitken Hodge, Clare Darcy and, of course, the inimitable Jane Austen.
She now lives in rural Gloucestershire where she is bossed about by Tobias, her Jack Russell terrier.
