Publisher's Summary

The fourth novel in the Lancashire-based Gibson series by beloved saga writer Anna Jacobs.   

In 1858 Annie Hallam has at last found complete happiness. She has three healthy babies and adores her husband, Frederick. After years of struggling to make a living in the small Lancashire town of Bilsden, Annie knows she deserves to sit back and enjoy her life - after all, she's not yet 40, and still in her prime.   

But worries - at first faint clouds on the horizon - are imminent. Frederick has been looking pale and ill lately. Her brother Tom hasn't moved on after the death of his wife. Rebecca, her half sister, is longing for something more than her work in the salon. And William, her son, isn't happy at university. In spite of Frederick's gentle urging not to take the entire burden of the Gibson family on her shoulders, Annie can't help feeling concerned.

And something much more dangerous is looming - a threat not only to Annie's peace of mind but to her life....

Brilliant

This is a wonderful story and I could imagine being there watching all that was happening. I can absolutely recommend this book, once again written so well by Anna Jacobs and read by one of my favourite narrators Anne Dover.

Superb narration!

I love these books, but this is a perfect example of an audible book being only as good as its narrator. Anne Dover is brilliant, and has brought all these books to life. Excellent choice!
I have enjoyed all these books so far!
