Emma Appleby's arrival in the County Durham village of Tow Law is sudden and mysterious, provoking deep suspicion in the locals. And because she has a child with her, seemingly out of marriage, they want nothing to do with her - except for pub landlord Mick Castle.
When Emma opens an academy and sets herself up in competition with the local school, she provokes a savage response from the community. But she will not be deterred - even when her past catches up with her and Mick is forced to choose between family and love.

I L❤️ve My Audio Books
Probably enjoy reading the book rather than listen on audio, but still a good book.
The narrator is not too bad, she reads in good clear precise UK English & tries well when she changes vocals to interpret the different characters.
I will look for other stories by this author in Whyspersynce so I can enjoy reading along whilst a narrator reads the book. All the rage now.
