She told CA: "I began writing seriously after an industrial accident forced me to abandon my lecturing career. Set in a small tin-mining town at the turn of the twentieth century, this book tells the story of Katie Warren, who goes to work in the "Big House" for the local gentry.
Eventually, Katie finds herself attracted to George, one of the sons of the family, but his unscrupulous brother Robert gets her turned out of the house, and she is forced to find work in a strange town. By the time Katie and George meet again, both are married to other people, but they cannot deny their old attraction. Other books in the "Cornish Saga" series follow the lives of Penvarris residents as the settled certainties of the nineteenth century give way to the upheavals of the twentieth century and World War I.
Cornish Harvest, for example, tells the story of several Cornish families torn apart by the war. According to Booklist reviewer Catherine Sias, the book is a "melodramatic yet intelligent and socially conscious historical romance. In these books, sixteen-year-old Wilhelmina "Sprat" Nicholls and young Denzil Vargo must deal with family secrets, local prejudices, and the strange new ideas promoted by the suffragist movement. Booklist reviewer Maria Hatton noted that in The Silent Shore, the result is a "sweet and simple tale in which early twentieth-century England comes alive.
Hatton stated that when Victoria falls in love with a miner recovering from an accident, the stage is set for a "wonderfully evocative, socially sensitive tale. Autocratic Stan rules his family with harshness; his wife has taken to bed and other children are sickly or timid. The daughter Dora, however, has a mind of her own and fights all obstacles to find love with mine-worker Tom Trewin. Hatton, again writing in Booklist, had high praise for Against the Tide, terming it "an engrossing tale that pulls the reader right into a finely rendered world.
Helena keeps to her room but harbors romantic feelings toward a childhood friend who in turn seems to be in love in Lucy. With the coming of World War I , however, change threatens this close-knit world.
Booklist reviewer Hatton felt that Aitken "brings a crucial era to life, and weaves an absorbing tale. This series focuses on Libertus, a former slave and now a mosaicist who draws on his fascination with puzzles and patterns to untangle murder mysteries, generally at the behest of his wealthy benefactor, Marcus Septimus.
In the first novel in the series, The Germanicus Mosaic, Libertus investigates the murder of a retired centurion. Kliatt reviewer Janet Julian called the novel "well written, full of lively details of Roman life. Aitken has been highly praised for the historical accuracy of her series.
A reviewer for Publishers Weekly called her "an outstanding Roman historical mystery writer," and in The Chariots of Calyx she demonstrates her talents at work. Here, Libertus investigates the strangulation death of the corn distributor of Londinium.
His search for the killer leads him to the dangerous sport of chariot racing, when he discovers the young widow of the corn distributor is the lover of a famous charioteer. The Publishers Weekly contributor felt that the author "excels at drawing the reader into second-century Roman Britain , effortlessly inserting historical context as well as clues.
Klett also had praise for The Chariots of Calyx, calling it an "exciting and adventurous historical. A ransom note demands not money, but the return of a person named Lallius Tiberius. As Libertus pursues his investigation, complications arise from every quarter in this novel which "nicely balances historical authenticity and a solid whodunit," as a Kirkus Reviews critic noted.
