Lizzie Kershaw is an independent spirit; ever since her father's death she has had to be a survivor. She makes an ill-advised marriage in order to escape her harsh home life. However, she quickly discovers that she has married a selfish and violent man. His beatings are ceaseless and she finds herself compelled to run away. With the help of some suffragettes, she escapes to Manchester, where she finds work in a munitions factory for a while. Sam manages to find her and drags her home. It is only when his violence causes her to lose their unborn baby that Lizzie really finds the strength to make things change, and to find happiness with a man who loves her.

About the Author:

Anna Jacobs grew up in Lancashire and emigrated to Australia in 1973, but loves to return to England regularly to visit her family and soak up the history. She has two grown-up daughters and now lives with her husband in a spacious waterfront home. Often as she writes, dolphins frolic outside the window of her study. Inside, the house is crammed with thousands of books. Anna Jacobs has also written a series of novels set in Lancashire about the Gibson family, which are available as Coronet paperbacks..

Review:

Once again you have given us a story that has me hooked from the first page to the last. The characters are so alive that I am loath to call them characters, they are people - so real that you almost feel for them * Reader from Scotland on OUR MARY ANN * Another cracking read with a vivid insight into family relationships * Coventry Evening Telegraph on OUR EVA * An exciting book of immensely brilliant character portrayal and a great storyline * Bangor Chronicle on OUR EVA * Anna Jacobs' books are deservedly popular. She is one of the best writers of Lancashire sagas around. * Historical Novels Review * Praise for Anna Jacobs: 'Catherine Cookson fans will cheer!' * Peterborough Evening Telegraph * It grabs you on page one. It twists and turns and not like you imagine it would. A fantastic read. ***** * Reader review * Fabulous book, just as I expected. ***** * Reader review * Great story, can't put it down ***** * Reader review * Reader reviews on OUR LIZZIE [Anna Jacobs is] especially big on resourceful, admirable women.
