Description of this Book

From the beloved and bestselling Anna Jacobs' comes the second novel in her new Lancashire-based saga. 1931, Lancashire: When Finn Carlisle loses his wife and unborn child, he spends a few years travelling to keep the sad memories at bay. Just as he's ready to settle down again, his great-uncle dies and leaves everything to him. This includes Heythorpe House in Ellindale just down the road from Leah Willcox and her little fizzy drink factory. Finn finds a village of people in dire need of jobs, a house that hasn't been cleaned or lived in for thirty years and Reggie, an eleven-year-old who's run away from the nearby orphanage and its brutal Director Buddle. When Finn sees the marks left by regular beatings, he decides Reggie will never go back there. He can't turn away two hungry young women from the village seeking jobs as maids, either, and they too need help with their lives. But Buddle has other plans for the child, and will stop at nothing to get Reggie back in his cruel grasp. His new neighbours help him save Reggie but other surprises throw his new plans into turmoil.

Author's Bio

Anna Jacobs was born in Lancashire at the beginning of World War Two. She was four when the war ended, and it was only after its end that she met her father, who had been serving as a soldier in the Middle East, for the first time. Anna remembers the post-war years well, as a peaceful time when people were happy to be done with war and content to enjoy themselves in simply ways such as playing cards with friends or going to Saturday dances at various clubs. Anna has since emigrated to Australia, but still visits the UK regularly to see her family and do research, something she loves. She is addicted to writing and figures she'll have to live to be 120 at least to tell all the stories that keep popping up in her imagination and nagging her to write them down. She's also addicted to her own hero, to whom she's been happily married for many years. She is the bestselling author of over sixty novels and has been shortlisted for several awards. Pride of Lancashire won the Australian Romantic Book of the Year Award in 2006, and The Trader's Wife was shortlisted for the 2012 award.
