Publisher's Summary

The first book in the heartwarming Gibson series by beloved saga author Anna Jacobs. 

In 1820, Salem Street is sparkling and new: eight small terraced houses built by a Lancashire mill owner for his best workers. Annie Gibson's family is one of the first to move in - a step up in the world for them. But when her mother dies, Annie's happy childhood ends and she is left to bring up her brother and sister. 

Red-haired, intelligent and startlingly pretty, Annie soon finds herself banished from home by a jealous stepmother. She finds work in the local doctor's household, where she learns about the fascinating world outside Salem Street. And when her adored childhood friend Matt asks her to marry him, Annie thinks her dreams are coming true. 

But suddenly everything turns upside-down. Abandoned and pregnant, Annie returns to Salem Street, where an unexpected offer gives her independence. One day, she vows, she will move into the wider world again. One day....

Excellent from the start to finish

Loved this book and the characters were very credible. The pace and narration were excellent and I didn't put it down until i'd finished it. It tells of the hardship of the early 1800's and one woman's strength of character. Only one complaint, as I didn't want it to end, when it did. I found it quite unsatisfactory and had hoped for a better conclusion. Will definitely be reading book two.
