Publisher's Summary

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.

    "A good Background Story"

    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.

    An avid Audible listener for the past two years, it fits in superbly with my busy lifestyle. Love crime and historical novels most.

    "Really enjoyable novel"

    This is a gentle breeze of a novel. No surprises just a great story, easy on the mind and strong on historical authenticity.
