Summary

Amazon UK Number-One Best Seller

"An outstanding author whose debut novel The Lead Miner’s Daughter is the most authentic historical novel I’ve read in a long long time." (Phil Mews, author)

A story of love, life and crime.

It is 1872 when Mary Watson leaves her childhood home to work at Springbank Farm. She soon meets a handsome farmer, Joe Milburn, and becomes infatuated with him, but is he the right man for her? What will her future hold? 

Mary’s story is woven into a background of rural life and crime. What happens in this remote valley leaves the community reeling in shock and seeking justice. 

Find yourself in the secluded valley of Weardale on the wide open moors and in the deep mines of the North Pennines as this intriguing and dramatic story unfolds.

Lovely

This was a wonderful story, it had everything, love, hate, murder and mystery.
I think Joe got his Just deserts after the way he treated Mary!
But I’m glad Mary and Tom got what they both wanted too.
The story kept me hooked and I couldn’t stop listening just to find out what happened next!
It was well written and the Narration was very good.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery or a good love story.

Great Story Line

Romance, drama, and intrigue. This was a great story well worth the credit. It is a story of life, love, and crime. Love and the trials of life. A good read.
