Down Weavers Lane/Jacobs, Anna/Paper/0340750596/S007-D
Years of sitting on the stairs - while her mother entertains her "visitors" in their squalid house down the seedy end of Weavers Lane - have taught Emmy Carter that prostitution is a life she must avoid at all costs. But she is a pretty girl, and her efforts to achieve respectability are hindered again and again.
George Duckworth, her mother's protector, has always planned to use Emmy as soon as she is old enough. She tries to escape him by working as a maid, but that delivers her into the clutches of a worse evil - her employer's nephew. Marcus Armistead is about to marry the daughter of the wealthiest family in their small Lancashire mill town, but that doesn't stop him pursuing Emmy ruthlessly. He wants her, whatever the cost - to her, and to whoever gets in his way...
Anna Jacobs's wonderful new saga of 1830s Lancashire introduces an unforgettable heroine whose greatest weapon is her strength of character.
