Caroline’s Books

Caroline’s books follow the lives of the twenty-one women mentioned in her mother’s family tree – “A True Account of the Royal Descent of Kathleen Mary Newark”. There is one book for each of the women, starting in the thirteenth century with the sister of a French king  and ending in the twentieth century with Caroline’s mother. Although the books are written as fiction, the people in them really existed and the known facts are as accurate as possible.
