Book cover for Love, Duty and Sacrifice

Author Nicola Webb tells the story of John Patricius (Patrick) Chaworth Musters who, in 1860 is born, heir to a wealthy landowning and mining family in Annesley, Nottinghamshire. Mary Anne Sharpe joins the household as a junior housemaid in 1881.

They become a couple, and failing to part them, Patrick’s parents send them to live in Norway, unwed, but away from “polite society”.

Four years and four children later, Patrick inherits the family’s vast estate, returns to England with Mary Anne and marries her…

This is truly a story of love, duty and sacrifice, which defied both convention and class.
