A new gritty, page-turning historical saga from Emma Hornby, Northern England' s answer to Dilly Court. Manchester, 1867 Mara longs for a peaceful life free of violence and poverty. But she has married into the O' Hara family, who have a reputation for their drunkenness and quick tempers. Her eldest step-son Conrad is the worst of them all - a brute and a criminal who makes Mara' s life a misery. But then Conrad is accused of a crime he didn' t commit, and Mara is the only one who can prove his innocence. Perhaps this is her chance to finally free her family from his toxic influence . . . Will Mara clear Conrad' s name, or will she have the courage to break free from her step-son' s villainy?

' Compelling. A gripping and powerful tale of vengeance and reprisal' * Val Wood, author of Children of Fortune * ' I loved the twists and turns. The emotional pull on my heartstrings was exquisite. Emma Hornby is a natural storyteller who always delivers and, from the first words to the last, my attention was captured. Read this story at your leisure, read it on the bus or on the train, in your lounge or in your bed - but you must read it. Storytelling at its best' * Sheila Riley, author of The Mersey Mistress * ' Edge of your seat drama, a book not to be missed!' * Lindsey Hutchinson, author of The Hat Girl from Silver Street * ' A moving picture of an abused mother' s love for her family, beautifully written and enthralling from the very first word' * Gracie Hart, author of The Baker' s Girl *
Emma Hornby lives on a tight-knit working-class estate in Bolton and has read sagas all her life. Before pursuing a career as a novelist, she had a variety of jobs, from care assistant for the elderly, to working in a Blackpool rock factory. She was inspired to write after researching her family history; like the characters in her books, many generations of her family eked out life amidst the squalor and poverty of Lancashire' s slums.
