Anna Jacobs grew up in Lancashire and emigrated to Australia, but still visits the UK regularly to see her family and do research, something she loves. She is addicted to writing and figures she'll have to live to be 120 at least to tell all the stories that keep popping up in her imagination and nagging her to write them down. She's also addicted to her own hero, to whom she's been happily married for many years. She is the bestselling author of over sixty novels and has been shortlisted for several awards. Pride of Lancashire won the Australian Romantic Book of the Year Award in 2006, and The Trader's Wife is on the shortlist for the 2012 award.

Annie Gibson continues her social climb from the depths of poverty on Salem Street as she opens her own modiste salon in a fashionable section of town. As her business expands, so does her personal life. Annie survived a brutal rape and the resulting pregnancy in the first part of the trilogy, Salem Street , and her experiences have made her uncomfortable with the suitors who pop up at every turn in the second book. But it is not until a rejected suitor threatens to blacken her carefully built reputation that Annie discovers love has been waiting patiently for her. High Street is a carefully crafted glimpse into the societal strata of Victorian England and a departure from most second novels of trilogies, which are primarily filler. A solid read and the makings of an excellent saga for historical fiction collections. Melanie Duncan
