I highly recommend this book.

I would tell people that you should step outside your comfort zone with books because it is good to add more authors and genres to your reading portfolio. Even if you do not read books like this.

I normally read books of this genre but l also stepped outside my comfort zone with authors and genres l am so glad l did because l have read so many great books and come across some great authors.

Synopsis: A young girl stands alone in the cobbled marketplace of a small Lincolnshire   town, bedraggled, soaked through and very afraid. No one knows or cares who she is or where she has come from. Only kind farmer Eddie appleyard recognizes something in the girl touches his heart, in a drunken haze Eddie takes her home. His wife Bertha accuses him of infidelity and turns Anna out in to the cold, wet night. Eddie hides the girl in a tumbledown shepherd's cottage that becomes her new home. Anna's arrival will change their lives: Eddie's, Bertha's and even that of their young son Tony, Torn between his warning parents and the mysterious stanger. It will take years for the secrets of Anna's former life to be revealed, but Bertha bides her time and awaits her moment, little realizing the tragedy her vengeance will unleash. Anne ends up pregnant after she was raped and Eddie helps Anna through her pregnancy and when she gives birth to her daughter and she stays in the cottage for years and Eddie and his son Tony help Anne loads and helps with Anna's daughter and Anna keeps the secret of what happened to her and how she got pregnant and how she got the scar on her fingers and why she run away from home and her family and the guy who raped Anna turns up with his dad and ends up stabbing Eddie who passes away and Anna, Tony, Maisie and Bertha try to save him but is is too late.

Review: I really found this book a mystery at first because of Anna just turning up and standing so still in the marketplace and it was very nice of Eddie and his son Tony helping her through everything she went through and Eddie helping her through the birth of her daughter and Anna helps Eddie with stuff around the farm but tries to keep out of the sight of Eddie's wife because she does not like Anne and Bertha sounds like a bitch and gets jealous of Eddie trying to help people because Eddie had a kind heart and Tony has a good heart like his dad. Tony takes after his dad not his mum. Tony took food to Anna for his dad when his dad was busy. I found this book really easy to get in to and hard to put down once l got in to it. I was sad to read that Anna's grandad was murdered and she was raped and had to run away from home to be safe from it happening again and her having to marry her rapist and I like Eddie and him helping poor Anna and her daughter Maisie and l like that Tony takes after his dad not his mum. After Eddie murder Tony kept helping Anna and Maisie because he knew that what his dad would want him to do. His mum Bertha left the farm after Eddie's passing because she felt guilty about telling the people who murdered Eddie and Anna's grandad where they could find Anna and her daughter Maisie. Tony helped teach Maisie to read and write which l think was nice of him. I wish l could rate this book more then five stars because it is worth more then the five stars l rated it.
