Summary

Set on the wild moors of West Yorkshire, The Girl from the Tanner's Yard by Diane Allen is a moving family drama about a girl who rises to prosperity from humble beginnings.

After facing the horrors of the Crimean War, Adam Brooksbank returns to Black Moss Farm filled with regret over the path in life he has chosen. Starting anew, he decides to focus on rebuilding his family’s rundown farm and make it a home again.

Lucy Bancroft lives with her parents on Prospect Terrace which backs onto the local tannery and is the most beautiful girl in the village. But unfortunately her wealth doesn’t match her looks, and she soon realises that nobody wants to court a girl from the filthy Flay Pits, let alone marry her.

Yet when Lucy comes to work for Adam as his maid, she finds herself falling in love with the farm set high upon the wild Moors of Haworth. Furthermore she begins to imagine a life with her new employer that goes beyond just being his maid. 

As they spend more time together, their feelings develop for one another despite her parents warning her nothing good will come of it. As rumours swirl around the village igniting jealousies and unearthing deeply buried secrets, will love find a way?
