Publisher's Summary

Lancashire 1934. Three years after her husband's sudden death, Stella comes into some money unexpectedly and decides to make a new start in the country. She settles on Ellin Valley, where she quickly begins to make friends. 

She falls in love with a cottage in Birch End, but an unscrupulous man wants it too. Will she be able to buy her dream home? 

Life has changed drastically for local handyman Wilf Pollard as well. When tragedy strikes, Wilf is left as the only support of his two young children. But his friends rally round to help so that he can pull his life together and take up an exciting new job with a well-respected builder.    

Some of the local council are eager to deal with the squalid conditions of the Backshaw Moss slum, but others will stop at nothing to keep their profitable rents. And Stella's dream cottage is threatened by their plans to build yet more cheap housing. Can Stella, Wilf and the residents of Birch End pull together to make sure good triumphs over evil?

Disappointed

I love Anna Jacobs stories but I found this one predictable.and the story drawn out. I was not too keen on the narrator as it was at times a bit jerky on the emphasis.

not the best

I enjoyed this story, and the narration , but the end was extremely disappointing. It seemed poorly thought out and almost amateurish. Narrator too exaggerated on accents of men.
