When Jenny Simmons, the ugly duckling of her family, blossoms into a swan, the world seems to be at her feet. And when she meets Bryn Thompson, an amateur boxer, her happiness is complete. But life has some cruel blows in store for her - not least a well-kept family secret which will devastate her and threaten her very life.
Helen Hall has recently qualified as a doctor and returned to the family home in Hillsbridge, trying to escape a complicated romance. Helen realises that she has it in her power to help Jenny, but will doing so cost her the job she loves?
Evocative and enthralling, A Family Affair portrays the lives, loves, hopes and tragedies of the families who live in the shadows of the Black Mountains.

Janet Tanner is a prolific and well-loved author and has twice been shortlisted for RNA awards. Many of her novels are multi-generational sagas, and some - in particular the Hillsbridge Quartet - are based on her own working class background in a Somerset mining community. More recently, she has been writing historical and well-received Gothic novels for Severn House - a reviewer for Booklist, a trade publication in the United States, calls her "a master of the Gothic genre".
Besides publication in the UK and US, Janet's books have also been translated into dozens of languages and published all over the world. Before turning to novels she was a prolific writer of short stories and serials, with hundreds of stories appearing in various magazines and publications worldwide.
Janet lives in Radstock, Somerset.
