A captivating story of love, family and survival, from a beloved author who 'tells a cracking story...an insight into people that is rarely found' (Nottingham Evening Post) Life is tough on the cobbled backstreet courtyards of Abbey Street, Warwickshire, in the 1840s: boys are destined for the pit and girls for the mill. Despite this, clever, feisty Maryann is happy there - until her mother dies. Her family collapses, leaving Maryann coping with everything, exhausted and lonely. Especially as Toby, the boy she is set on marrying, insists they wait. When things are at their bleakest, Maryann is offered a lifeline: a position as nanny to the daughter of the mill owner, Wesley Marshall. Though the house is filled with secrets and heartache, there is kindness, too, and to Maryann's surprise she grows close to Marshall. But their relationship has not gone unnoticed and it threatens to unleash a world of problems on them all . . . 'A gifted writer. Tells a cracking story and does so with an insight into people that is rarely found' -Nottingham Evening Post

Spanning three decades, this book centres on a small Yorkshire town and its woollen industry, where Sarah Harvey works her way from near poverty to become a wealthy and respected woman in the wider community. Yet her life seems blighted by tragic events that will truly test her mettle – including blackmail when it becomes clear that her son is homosexual. Nevertheless, she will protect her boy from the malicious actions of others by every means at her disposal. This tale is both heart-wrenching and funny, containing an abundance of no-nonsense Yorkshire wit. But fundamentally, it is story of love.

This scribbled note belonged to Sarah M. Cornell, written the day her body was found hanged in a rural pasture in Tiverton, Rhode Island. An unmarried young woman of limited means, Sarah was four months pregnant, and a married Methodist minister stood accused as the father. Local authorities grew skeptical of Sarah's apparent suicide as Reverend Avery's conduct appeared increasingly suspect, and eventually the extensive evidence of their tortured relationship set off a groundswell of public interest and media attention never before seen in 1830s New England. This tragic crime left the nation clamoring for justice and became one of early America's most sensational murder trials.
