Publisher's Summary

From the beloved and best-selling Anna Jacobs comes a new Lancashire-based saga.

Lancashire, 1930: Leah Turner's father has been killed in an accident at the laundry, and since her mother died years ago it falls to her to become sole provider for her little sister. But women's wages are half those of men, and pawning the few belongings she has left will keep their vicious rent collector at bay for only a few weeks, so even if she finds a job, they'll lose their home.

Out of the blue, Charlie Willcox, the local pawnbroker, offers her a deal. His brother Jonah, an invalid since being gassed in the Great War, needs a wife. Charlie thinks Leah would be perfect for the job.

The idea of a marriage of convenience doesn't please Leah, but she finds Jonah agreeable enough, and moving with him to the pretty hamlet of Ellindale may be the only chance of a better life for her sister. But other people have plans for the remote Pennine valley, and the two sisters find themselves facing danger in their new life with Jonah. Can the three of them ever look to a brighter future?

    "Recommended"

    From the cover I expected this novel to be a bit less interesting than it turned out to be. For all the storyline was quite simple I really warmed to the characters. There were things that turned out differently in a more positive way than expected. And I would hope for a continuation of the characters in another follow up book. Anne's narration is a big part of why I liked it too.
