Publisher's Summary

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 goodness are rallying and are determined to prevail, whatever it takes.

A wonderful series of captivating stories.

I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to these stories involving the setting up of a music hall and the revealing lives of mill workers and their families. All are beautifully narrated and exciting to hear how the characters developed as the stories unfurled..
