IT'S SAGA SATURDAY!! And a new release from saga author, Annemarie Brear...


 

The Market Stall Girl
(ebook and paperback, AnneMarie Brear)

1913 Yorkshire, England
Beth Beaumont enjoys her life as a rhubarb farmer’s daughter in West Yorkshire. Working on the family’s stall selling the fruit and vegetables grown in their own fields gives her a sense of purpose and is healthier than working in a dangerous cotton mill.

Although not thinking of marriage, when Beth meets Noah Jackson, a village miner, she is suddenly very aware of Noah as a man who could change her mind. The summer brings the two closer and their feelings deepen while Noah studies hard to fulfill his dreams of becoming a teacher and securing a better life than his parents endure.

But, a disaster at the coal mine changes lives forever. Noah’s plans are shattered. His love for Beth is put at risk, and he fears they can never find happiness together.

However, another man wants Beth. Louis Melville, the wealthy son of a local gentry family, is acutely aware of Beth’s beauty and he wants her for himself. At first, he is willing to offer marriage, but when Beth turns him down in favour of Noah, Melville, furious to be denied, wreaks revenge with devastating consequences.
Will Beth and Noah find the happiness they wish for or will overwhelming events break them apart?


From the author: I had the idea for this book when driving with my Uncle Peter around Wakefield, Yorkshire and he was showing me places where my parents lived. I already knew of some areas, but when we drove down a dirt lane in Wrenthorpe, which hadn’t changed much since my parents were children and fields lined both sides of the lane, I suddenly wanted to set a book there. The Market Stall Girl is a nod to all my ancestors who lived in and around Wakefield.
