Summary

The first book in the dramatic new saga from the number one Sunday Times best-selling author. 

Holding the letter in trembling hands, Daisy’s future crumbled before her – the words engraved on her heart forever. 

The village of Little Creek, the long winter of 1867.  

The first flakes of snow are falling when Daisy Marshall, secretly engaged to her master's son, finds herself jilted at the altar.  

Heartbroken, Daisy flees to the small village of Little Creek, nestled on the coast of Essex. There she is warmly welcomed – but the village is poverty-stricken, suffering under a cruel lord of the manor. And when cholera hits, the villagers are truly in dire straits.  

Determined to help, Daisy makes new friends in earnest doctor Nicholas and dashing smuggler Jay – but also dangerous new enemies, who threaten to destroy everything she’s built. Can Daisy save the village and find happiness in time for Christmas?

Wonderful

Yet another lovely story written by Dilly Court and read so well by Annie Aldington. I absolutely loved it and I am sure that anyone who listens to this book will feel the same.

Didn't care for narration

The narrator's voice was too old for Daisy and the other young women in the story! She was fine for the older women but I could never picture Daisy as a young woman because of the voice of Annie Aldington. It was a poor choice of whomever picked the narrator to read this book. The narrator had a lower class British accent which was fine for many of the characters, but she could not change it to an upper class British accent when required. Also, the story was to trite and predictable. I didn't like all the long descriptions of the various illnesses either. I may return this book, if possible.
