Ellen Dawson is glad when the Great War ends, but sad that Lady Bingram's aides are to be disbanded. She can't bear to go back into service again after working as a driver and mechanic in London. But she is forced by her mother's illness to accept her old position as housemaid in order to stay in the small Lancashire town ...and her stepfather will stop at nothing to get her under his control again. Meanwhile, Seth Talbot is also facing great difficulties when he takes over as local policeman and tries to bring order to a town where the law has been flouted for years. Anna Jacobs brilliantly recreates life in 1919 in this gripping story of gutsy heroines, wicked men and courageous heroes, and will thrill, chill and warm your heart along the way.

About Anna Jacobs
Anna Jacobs grew up in Lancashire and emigrated to Australia a while ago, but still visits the UK regularly to see her family and do research, something she loves. She has two grown-up daughters and lives with her husband in a spacious waterfront home. Often, as she writes, dolphins frolic outside the window of her office. Inside, the house is crammed with thousands of books.
