A Daughter's Journey

A Daughter's Journey

Book One in beloved author Anna Jacobs’ brand new Birch End series.

Jo Melling has arrived in Birch End from Australia, still grieving her father’s recent death. She’s not intending to stay long, but after tracking down her distant family, Jo becomes more involved in village life than she could ever have imagined – and suddenly in danger too.

Jo also finds herself drawn to Nick, a handsome newcomer to the village. Nick had planned to settle in Birch End and start a business, but as he grows closer to Jo, he realises he may have to choose between his dreams and a chance at love.

Meanwhile, the new local council are faced with some tough decisions of their own. It’s time to take a stand against the poor conditions in Backshaw Moss, the nearby slum, but some councillors want things to stay as they are – and will go to any lengths to make sure they get their way . . .

Will the decent people of the valley win a brighter future for themselves? And can Jo find a way to stay with Nick in a place she’s grown to love?

This is that rare thing, a pacy page-turner with a ripping plot and characters you care about . . . [Anna Jacobs is] especially big on resourceful, admirable women. Great stuff!
Daily Mail
Anna Jacobs' books are deservedly popular. She is one of the best writers of Lancashire sagas around.
Historical Novels Review
[Anna Jacobs' books have an] impressive grasp of human emotions.
