Summary

Charlotte Booth loves her father and the home they share, which is set high up in the limestone escarpments of Crummockdale. But when a new businessman, Joseph Dawson, enters their lives, both Charlotte and her father decide he's the man for her, and within six months Charlotte marries the dashing mill owner from Accrington.

Then a young mill worker is found dead in the swollen River Ribble. With Joseph's business nearly bankrupt, it becomes apparent that all is not as it seems, and Joseph is not the man he pretends to be. Heavily pregnant, penniless and heartbroken, Charlotte is forced to face the reality that life may never be the same again.

Great story - hoping for a sequel!

This is a thoroughly enjoyable and engaging "listen" - full marks to the narrator who brought it to life very well. I was disappointed when the story started to unravel towards its conclusion - left me wanting more - certainly room for a sequel here so let's hope Diane Allen is minded the same way! I wholeheartedly recommend this book.
