Heart of the Town

Heart of the Town

Dora Preston has guts, but it will take more than that for her to break free from Hedderby and make a life for herself on the stage. Then she meets Gideon – and pursuing her ambitions becomes even harder. Gideon has returned from the fighting in India only to discover that an impostor has stolen his inheritance. He has vowed he will claim his birthright but his enemies are ruthless and desperate.

Arson attacks, crime and drunkenness have beset the Lancashire mill town, but the forces of good are rallying and are determined to prevail – whatever it takes.

Anna Jacobs' books are deservedly popular. She is one of the best writers of Lancashire sagas around.

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
