Book Description

It is 1860 in Bilsden, the Lancashire mill town, and Frederick Hallam is dying. But first he makes secret plans to smooth the future path for his beloved wife Annie. Her sister, Joanie, is fed up with everything until a dshing new admirer crosses her path. But a spurned suitor is determined that Joanie will be his, whatever the cost. And he is not the only one who wants to harm the Gibson family.

Meanwhile the Civil War in America cuts off cotton supplies, so that times are hard in Bilsden and unemployment is rife. Annie had to rebuild her life after her husband's death and plans to create Spinners Lake, an extraordinary project that will keep her workers from destitution and assuage her own grief.

Tian Gilchrist is caught up in the American war and nearly dies there. He fights his way back to Bildsen, to Annie, whom he has never forgotten.

And the plans that Frederick made for Annie will change her life in unforeseen ways, bringing her hope and happiness once again...

    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)

    Book Description

    The final novel in the heartwarming Lancashire-based Gibson Family series by beloved saga author Anna Jacobs.

    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 Cannot resist 29 Jan. 2014
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    The trouble with these books , is that you cannot put them down when you start to read them. I must admit I like anna's historical novels better than her more modern, but then I like history. Still all anna's books are lovely

    Anna Jacobs can do no wrong. I love the way she writes her stories and a good mixtures of heroes and heroines. The last one Spinners lake was not quite as riviting as the other three in the Gibson family but nevertheless very enjoyable. I have ordered more for reading.

    I have loved the follow on of the Gibson family. Spinners Lake continued the family life in a new but old beginning. Tina had to be part of Annie's life. Awesome!
