Book Description

Calico Road runs through a tiny Lancashire hamlet up on the edge of the moors, miles from anywhere. Its folk are an independent breed -- and in 1827 they are a thorn in the side of the vicious mill owner in the valley below. Toby Fletcher's father ignored his bastard son while alive. Now Toby is the new owner of the rambling old inn, an unwitting keeper of its secrets. Then Meg Staley comes to Calico, a woman who was strong enough to survive one tragedy, but found it harder to withstand a second blow. Toby finds her wandering the moors, cold and starving, and brings her back to the inn. Working there, Meg starts to rebuild her life and find a fragile happiness. But then the secrets of Calico Road come crashing down on her and those she has grown to love ...

More About the Author

Anna Jacobs grew up in Lancashire and emigrated to Australia, but still visits the UK regularly to see her family and do research, something she loves. She is addicted to writing and she figures she'll have to live to be 120 at least to tell all the stories that keep popping up in her imagination and nagging her to write them down. She's also addicted to her own hero, to whom she's been happily married for many years.

Anna also writes fantasy novels as Shannah Jay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Calico Road 5 Nov. 2005
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best books I've ever read. I enjoyed it so much I am reading it again and have also bought my daughter a copy.
This book draws you into the story in such a way that you really feel you are living the experience and never want to leave 'the old place' on top of the moors.
The characters are so real you begin to feel as if you know them as are the areas they live in.

This was a present for my wife. The book arrived on time and as described.
My wife has read several Anna Jacobs books - Our Lizzy, Lancashire Lass, Farewell to Lancashire, Beyond the Sunset - to name a few and says that this is as good as any she has read

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have now read about 7 or8 books written by this LADY, and they all have the same affect on me. I only wish I could afford all her books she has written at once, and theb lock myself away with them.
