After years of struggling to make a living in the small Lancashire town of Bilsden, she can finally enjoy the fruits of her labours and she's not yet forty, still in her prime. But there are worries Frederick has been looking pale and does become ill. Her brother Tom hasn't moved on after the death of his young wife Madeleine. Rebecca, her half-sister, is longing for something more than her work at the salon. And William, her son, isn't happy at university. He is starting to feel a spiritual calling at odds with the Gibson business mindedness. And something much more dangerous is looming - a threat not only to Annie's peace of mind, but to her life as well. Here we see Annie's eldest son William come more in to his own person and how he and his mother come to terms with his calling. Tom renews his friendship with his past girlfriend Rose now a famous singer raising their illegitimate son. Annie's sister Rebecca becomes attracted to the new Lord Darrington (brother to the one who had killed Marianne Tom's wife) and he with her much to the concern of Annie and Frederick due to his status being above her. How this develops is nicely told. How Frederick's wish for a family portrait introduces a new character to the series and to the Hallam circle of friends.

    Have read the first four in this series and enjoyed all. Now reading the fifth. Ms. Jacobs writing and subject matter is very like my all time favorite author, Catherine Cookson. I am so pleased to have stumbled across her work and intend to read each of her books! That will keep me busy for several months as she has been a very busy author. I especially like the historical accuracy in events, speech patterns and lifestyles of the era.

As I read, I feel as if I stepped back in time and exist in this mid 1800's cotton town. My family emigrated to the USA from a small Devon village in 1850 and these stories make me feel closer to them. Thank you, Ms. Jacobs, for the hours of reading pleasure and even for the tears I've shed over Annie and her family's trials.

    I have given one star, not because of the storyline which I really enjoyed but because of the lack of punctuation. No opening quotes throughout many parts of the book. Chapter 30’s first sentence has a phrase repeated. The title of Chapter 31 has the name of the place misspelt! It ruined the book for me, and has made me unsure if I want to read others in the series. I would have dismissed the proofreader and I’m disappointed at Hodder Books for allowing it to pass.

    Does the author not respect women? First, I enjoy the character development in all the Annie Jacob’s series, however, does the main female character always have to be raped or assaulted? And why so many bastard births? This book was poorly edited with a lot of grammatical errors. It didn’t flow as well as the first three in this series. Instead of being disappointed when the book ended I was relieved when last page was turned.

    I didn't enjoy this one as much as Jacobs' other books. It was a bit annoying as it kept referring to events which happened in the previous 3 books in the series. This one focused on one of the Gibson sisters, Annie and her husband who is determined to do something for the village in which they live before he dies. But someone is not happy with the happy couple and seek to harm Annie - though it takes a couple of attempts before she realises and then it comes from a surprise person.

    One of her better books. This is one of the continuing saga of the Gibson family during the 1850's in Lacanshire,England. Told with great detail of characters and drama as to the situation of the times. One of her better books.
