Book Description

28 Dec 2006 Preston Sisters

Dora Preston can stand up for herself, but when she impulsively stops some young louts from torturing a puppy, she bites off more than she can chew. Luckily, a good-looking stranger rescues her. But though attracted to him, Dora's first desire is to find success on the music hall stage.

Gideon, recently discharged from the Army, has arrived in Hedderby only to discover another man has stolen his name and inheritance. Would it be fair to court Dora when he can offer her so little? Despite his anger he patiently bides his time, working in the markets, until he can reclaim what is his.

With the town's orphanage vandalized, the music hall not yet rebuilt, and the imposter prepared to kill to keep what he has stolen, trouble is brewing on several fronts. Gideon and Dora's lives are threatened. And even if they survive, how will they find a future together?

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 Heart of the Town 24 Feb 2007
By Jano
Heart of the Town is the 4th book about the Preston family. My favorite charactor in this book was Gideon, he is a man of mystery and I could feel his frustrations in his quest for truth in Anna's writing. Anna describes her charactors so well that you feel that they are people that you know and love.

As always i am left wanting more, I have enjoyed everyone of Annas books and if you have not read any, please do buy one of her books,you too will become a loyal fan, waiting for her next books to be published.

By H. Hale
Another excellent novel by Anna Jacobs. Continuing on with the family sagas Dora, like her sister Marjorie, also wants a life in show business and with her family against another member going on the stage she proves her worth.

Anna Jacobs books are a definate must read!

Like all of the books by Anna Jacobs, "Heart of the Town" is most enjoyable to read. I only have one criticism about Anna's books, they are so good that when I download one I get nothing else done for a while, as I can't put the book down.
