Maura Deverell is a young Irish peasant girl whose mother is dying of consumption. Their cruel landlord threatens to throw them out of their cottage unless Maura agrees to marry his young son, Liam Riordan. After an act of violence, Maura's mother, on her deathbed, curses the Riordans and makes Maura promise to leave Ireland for good. Maura ends up in Birmingham, where she longs to go home but is stopped only by her promise to her mother.

About the Author:

Meg Hutchinson lived for sixty years in Wednesbury, where her parents and grandparents spent all their lives. Her passion for storytelling reaped dividends, with her novels regularly appearing in bestseller lists. She was the undisputed queen of the clogs and shawls saga. Passionate about history, her meticulous research provided an authentic context to the action-packed narratives set in the Black Country. She died in February 2010.

Review:

A compelling read, for all the heart-breaking agony. * Coventry Evening Telegraph * Praise for PEPPERCORN WOMAN:'A dramatic saga calculated to grip readers from the opening line.' * Keswick Reminder * This is dramatic, gritty stuff. * Bookseller *
