Book Description

24 Nov 2011
After twenty four years, Kate returns to her Lancashire home town to claim her inheritance, with a new name and a life she would never have had if she'd stayed.

She has two weeks to empty the farmhouse of her dad's possessions and put it on the market so she can slot herself neatly back into London normality. Easy.

Except, her former friends insist on calling her Kathy, the family home is filled with ghosts, the Wild won't stay where it should and it's proving very difficult to return what she stole from Aunt Annie.

Plus, there's distraction in the shape of Simon, her first love - old enough to know better but still getting into fights and still hanging around with the same crowd.

In fact, not a lot moves on in this tomb of the 19th century cotton kings: this is the industrial North, where dreams are born free and hunted by distant accountants, where the slow creep of the moss is ignored, violence is endemic, change is feared and local bards sing odes to Class B drugs.

Kate feels very pleased she has moved on from this backward place. Kathy's not too sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely read which left me wanting more. 20 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having grown up in Rossendale where this story was set I recognised the physical and cultural landscape of the story straight away. I loved the way it was written; the descriptions of places, people and feelings are somehow gentle, romantic and engaging. You can tell that the author has great affection for the area, as well as the different types of people that live here. Even if I hadn't grown up in Rossendale I would still have enjoyed the story and the style of writing. The actual story itself hooked me on a number of levels - it had a bit of otherworldly spookiness as well as a dash of romance. When I say romance I don't just mean between people; there is romance between the people and the landscape, which almost becomes a character in itself - definitely worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Storyteller 4 Aug 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Jackie T. Holt is far and away one of my favorite storytellers of all time. This book exemplifies everything I love about her writing. There are times when I find myself completely immersed, transported, smelling the smells, hearing the ambient noises, feeling the tension, joy, regret, lust, like a dream. There is a magick in her writing, and in Annie's story that I find irresistible.

Annie, the Doll, it's Thief and her Lover is a fantastic and lovingly detailed view into the return of a woman to her roots. When Kate returns to her childhood home to pack up her late father's home two years after his death, she finds that her past has a tremendous pull. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, highly recommended.
