A Time to Rejoice

A Time to Rejoice

***Book three in the beautifully heartwarming Rivenshaw Saga, set at the end of the Second World War***

After a stray bomb scored a direct hit on his childhood home in Hertfordshire, the only thing that has kept Francis Brady going while he works day and night salvaging what he can from the rubble is the thought that soon he’ll be joining war-time friends Mayne, Daniel and Victor as electrician in their new dream building firm in Lancashire.

But things are not going to plan: Mayne isn’t answering any of his letters; Francis’ wife is having a change of heart about moving up north – and her parents seem set on destroying his reputation…
A lot of marriages are breaking up in these times of change, and Francis is loathe for his to be one of them… But how can he turn down the opportunity of a new life and career in Rivenshaw?

Meanwhile in Rivenshaw itself, newly married Mayne and Judith’s plans to convert Esherwood house into flats have come to an abrupt halt. While clearing out the house in readiness for the rebuild, they’ve discovered that someone has been stealing valuables and hiding them in the old Nissen hut. But who hid them there – and are they planning on returning for them? And are they also responsible for something else found in the shelter: a body, buried in a shallow grave . . .

With so much going against them, can these four friends ever turn their dreams into reality?

The Sunday Times
Jacobs excels at creating vivid, memorable characters.
Booklist USA
This story has something happening on every page...great characters and the ensemble of secondary characters flow easily with some quite complicated plots flowing well around the central story.
Australian Romance Readers Association on THE TRADER'S SISTER
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 on THE TRADER'S GIFT
Anna Jacobs' books are deservedly popular. She is one of the best writers of Lancashire sagas around.
