A New Story - in Chapters


Doing research for a novel, I came across the mention of Allegra Byron, Lord Byron's illegitimate daughter, whom he essentially abandoned in a convent. Having a spirited daughter of my own, little Allegra piqued my imagination. What was her life in the convent like?

I imagined it in a story, which the lovely site Five Chapters has serialized this week - releasing a "chapter" a day.

If you're so inclined, give it a read: Chapter 1 starts here.

With gratitude,
MMB
