'This saga is, like all of Audrey Howard's books, compelling and memorable...a joy to read' [The Historical Novels review on A PLACE CALLED HOP]

'Among the dross that constitutes the Liverpool saga market for women, Howard's enjoyable 19th-century historical romance of crossed love shines out.' [Daily Mail]

'Poignant and well plotted, this is the book to curl up with to shut out trou

When beautiful Tessa Harrison and her twin cousins take over their parents' Lancashire cotton mill, their luxurious upbringing has left them unprepared for their new responsibilities.

For Tessa, there is an added but forbidden attraction at the mill. Foreman Will Broadbent, with his genuine understanding of the business and its workers, could not be more different from the dashing cousins. Yet, like the twins, he is hopelessly in love with this untameable girl.

Their love for Tessa will lead one to death, one to the arms of another woman, a thrid too faint-hearted to take up his inheritance.

And Tessa, the girl who could choose any man she wanted, is forced to shoulder more burdens than she could have imagined before she can be united with the one man she truly needs.
