Summary

Lincolnshire, 1910. Shunned by her own family, desperate for work and a place to stay, Esther Everatt walks through the night to Sam Brumby's farm, seeking the chance to earn her keep. Reluctantly, the old man takes her on.

Able to work alongside any man, Esther soon earns Sam's grudging respect and affection, and at last feels she has found a home she can call her own. But her peace and security are cruelly shattered when old Sam dies. As a woman she has no right to inherit the lease on the farm.

Believing that her passion lies solely with the land and a place of her own, Esther prepares to risk everything to secure her future by seeking marriage with a local farm-hand. But as war arrives to dash the hopes of a generation, Esther begins to discover that it is only the truest of love that can survive the passing of seasons.

Disappointment

Where in the world did the regional accents come from? Sounded more like Geordie than Lincs to me. I expected better from Susan Jameson. Am now reading the other 2 books in this trilogy on Kindle.

Alas abridged but not advertised as such...

I've been reading this excellent trilogy on my kindle. What a scam to sell the audio book with only half the story! Shame on you Audible I will be reconsidering whether to bother in future. Can't recommend the WHOLE story highly enough but this offering was a joke.
