Annie

Annie Swinburn had killed a man - the killing was timely and well-deserved, for Francis Morton had been evil in every possible way. But Annie knew that however justified her crime, only the rope and the gibbet awaited her if she remained in the slums of Hull. And so she ran - up river, along the wild and secretive paths of the great Humber - a new and unfamiliar territory which was to lead her into a new and unfamiliar life.

Publisher's Summary

Annie Swinburn had killed a man - the killing was timely and well-deserved, for Francis Morton had been evil in every possible way. But Annie knew that however justified her crime, only the rope and the gibbet awaited her if she remained in the slums of Hull. And so she ran - up river, along the wild and secretive paths of the great Humber - a new and unfamiliar territory which was to lead her into a new and unfamiliar life.

Her first refuge was with Toby Linton, well-born, estranged from his father and - with his brother Matt - earning a dangerous living as a smuggler. Annie led a double life, as a smuggler, and as a pedlar roaming the remote countryside of the Wolds. It was this new existence which led her, once more, into allowing herself to love, in spite of all the things that had gone before.

    "A compelling listen"

    This must be Valerie Wood at her best ............ it links in with The Hungary Tide, though both can be read in isolation without problem. It was fascinating to join Annie and to see how her life turned out. Infact, the impression I had gained of her in the Hungary Tide was not what she turned out to be: a woman with forethought, sobriety, steadfastness and a steely determination to win through and make something of her life. The book could have finished earlier but I admired the way the Author took time to revisit Annie's past which was covered in great detail and resolved any queries the reader would have in mind as to Annie's earlier days. The author's depiction of life in Hull was remarkable; I could almost smell it! A thoroughly enjoyable and compelling listen. I highly recommend this book.
