About this title
Set against the blistering heat and grinding poverty of the chainshops of the Black Country, this compelling love story charts the struggle of young Anna Gibson to forge a new life from the remnants of betrayal by her lover and a tragic marriage of convenience.A simple offer of work as a model proves to be the catalyst for complete change, taking Anna from the sunny beaches and liberal attitudes of an artist's colony in Brittany to the struggle to survive and make good in the immigrant community of downtown New York.Anna learns her lessons well, and she finds herself still making chains, but now chains of restaurants, leading to wealth if not happiness. Then comes Prohibition, and Anna's decisions involve her in a gangland feud which threatens her family and friends in a frightening web of intrigue and violence.How do we recover from the agony of a lover's betrayal? What is true love anyway? Can we befriend lawbreakers without getting hurt?These questions are at the core of this unusual and compelling book. Written with humour, colour and passion, Helen Spring weaves an absorbing tale of obsession and complex emotions, and their far-reaching consequences.About the Author:
Helen Spring was born in the Black Country, in the industrial Midlands of England, like her parents and grandparents before her, and she still has many friends and relatives there. After a successful business career, Helen decided to concentrate on writing fiction. Her latest published novel is Strands of Gold; a fast paced adventure novel set in colonial Singapore and the Australian outback. With her colleague Peter Newton, she has just completed a fictional life of the 12th century Welsh warrior princess Gwenllian, entitled Memories of the Curlew.
