Publisher's Summary

Rachel Smedling is not like the other women in her isolated Pennine village: she is taller, stronger, and weaves cloth like a man. Without her, the household would fall apart, for her mother is ailing and her vicious drunkard father seems to hate her so much, he would happily offer money to any man who would wed her.  

When her mother dies, Rachel is at the mercy of her increasingly violent father.  

Her only escape is marrying a kindly man with whom she finds happiness, if not passion, and her life begins to seem complete.  

Rachel's growing prosperity infuriates her father and his cronies, however, and they will stop at nothing to see her destroyed.

Well drawn characters.

This book transported me to a time when women had very few rights and the gentry had power. The characters were well drawn and complex. There were trials and tribulations for the main character but the glimmer of a happy ending kept me listening.

Like No Other

Loved it! These books, written by Anna Jacobs, get better every time I listen to one and Nicolette McKenzie is such a good narrator.

great story

Amother Anna Jacobs story I loved. The number of characters initially was hard to fathom but turned into a great story. Never dull, story flowed well. Great story.
