Sophronia’s Moors in the Finishing School Series

While I was in England I trotted down to Devon to visit my family and childhood stomping grounds but also to rove about Dartmoor. As you know, Gentle Reader, the Finishing School books partly take place in Dartmoor. (Or should I say: floating above it?) I thought you would like to see what the moor looks like.

If you aren’t already familiar with the place. I wonder if it’s how you imagined from my descriptions.

Haytor, different view ~  yes it does look like a massive cow pie


Gorse (yellow), heather (purple), ferns, and other vegetation


The beautiful moors, this is what I see in my head

    I love the pictures! This is what I pictured, though with mostly longer grass like the flower picture above the pony.
