Hello and welcome back, Sophie! Let's start our interview with something you said in your review. You said the premise of this story was “bonkers.” How did you come up with the idea for this book?
As for the bonkers premise, it was a combination of things, and I can’t remember which came first. I had been mulling over a what if for a lost at sea story and I also have a soft spot for amnesia plots. I also at some point learned that bigamy was technically punishable by death in the Georgian era. That was dangerous knowledge for me to have!
