Product Description

Review

Praise for Anna Jacobs:

'Catherine Cookson fans will cheer!'

(Peterborough Evening Telegraph)

Anna Jacobs' books are deservedly popular. She is one of the best writers of Lancashire sagas around. (Historical Novels Review)

An exciting book of immensely brilliant character portrayal and a great storyline (Bangor Chronicle on OUR EVA)

Another cracking read with a vivid insight into family relationships (Coventry Evening Telegraph on OUR EVA)

Once again you have given us a story that has me hooked from the first page to the last. The characters are so alive that I am loath to call them characters, they are people - so real that you almost feel for them (Reader from Scotland on OUR MARY ANN)

Product Description

In this saga set in 19th-century Lancashire and featuring the Gibson family, Annie is now happily married to mill-owner Frederick Hallam, but a threat from the past emerges to cause her anxiety.

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.

To contact Anna or to find out more about her books, look at her website www.annajacobs.com or visit her Facebook page www.facebook.com/Anna.Jacobs.Books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Part of a fantastic Victorian family saga. 8 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I read this book in two days and found it very hard to put down. It's not only a family saga but also a mystery. My mother was right. Ms. Jacobs has picked up where the late great Catherine Cookson left off. Thank God for writers like these that write about life and not that other trash masquerading as Victorian romance where the hero never wears a shirt and has his leading lady bent over backwards.

5.0 out of 5 stars HALLAM SQUARE 28 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
THIS IS THE 4TH IN THE GIBSON FAMILY SERIES. THEREFORE I RECOMMEND THAT YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY READ SALEM STREET, HIGH STREET AND RIDGE HILL BEFORE HALLAM SQUARE.

HAVING READ THE FIRST THREE IN THE SERIES, HALLAM SQUARE DOES NOT DISAPPOINT AS THE 4TH IN THE SERIES. IT CLEVERLY CONTINUES ON, LEAVING YOU HOOKED ON EACH OF THE CHARACTERS. THIS IS A GRIPPING READ AND ANNA JACOBS EXCELLANTLY NUTURES ALL OF HER CHARACTERS, SO THAT THEY ARE ALL VERY MUCH INDIVUDUALS, FROM THE YOUNGEST TO THE OLDEST. I LOVE THIS PERIOD OF HISTORY AND SHE COVERS IT WELL. I HAVE NOW ORDERED SPINNERS LAKE UNFORTUNATELY THE LAST IN THE GIBSON FAMILY SERIES, AND I CANNOT WAIT TO START IT. I AM NOW LOOKING FOR MY NEXT ANNA JACOBS SERIES TO ABSORB MYSELF IN.

A book for the wife, who thoroughly enjoys most writing Anna Jacobs does, one to get the wife who does not like unnecessary use of bad language or explicit content.

This story is quite good but very old fashioned, it goes back to the dark ages, I was going to read the sequence but got fed up with the do's and dont's of courting.
