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.

Another well written book by Anna Jacobs. I enjoy all her book and didn't want to put this one down until I finished it. Now I am waiting for the sequel to come out to find out what happened next. I can recommend this book especially to Anna Jacob's fans

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great story from Anna Jacobs 24 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've just finished this one and like the other reviewer, I didn't want to put it down until I'd finished it. The only thing I would say is that it seemed to end pretty quickly, this is probably because there's another one to follow (maybe more, who knows?).

Anna Jacobs has written many 'sets' of books and they're all brilliant so I'm certain the Swan River Colony books are going to be just as good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Farewell to Lancashire - Anna Jacobs 26 Sep 2012
By Erin
Format:Paperback
Yesterday evening I picked up `Farewell to Lancashire' and read it cover-to-cover. Rather annoying, I'm busy at the moment and I had to start work at 4am today.

`Farewell to Lancashire' is the most gorgeous story. The novel is so empowering, for the reader, for the characters and the plot so rich. It's quite impossible to put down.

I'm quite sure there is something in the water in Western Australia that turns people like Anna Jacobs into authors. It couldn't be just skill and hard work, or they'd be all over the world.

A warning to those on a strict budget, Anna Jacobs is such a clever author she can actually manage to insert addictive advertisements for her next novel in the series, 'Beyond the Sunset' within the lines of her novel. We `poor' readers must run out and start to search knowing the novel is still several months from the bookshop.

3.0 out of 5 stars Anna Jacobs page binding error 18 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback
I bought my wife the Anna Jacobs book "Farewell to Lancashire" in August 2010. She has only just got round to reading it and has found it very enjoyable until she got to page 405 where the book finishes prematurely halfway down the page. The next page ia half a page about the Author. The next page is an extract of a book "Beyond the Sunset". Then there is 3 pages of a Prologue and then the first 27 pages of this book.
It seems that the last pages of Farewell to Lancashire are missing from page 405 onwards. Please advise how this has happened.
