Praise for Anna Jacobs: 'Catherine Cookson fans will cheer!' — Peterborough Evening Telegraph 'Anna Jacobs' books are deservedly popular. She is one of the best writers of Lancashire sagas around.' — Historical Novels Review 'An exciting book of immensely brilliant character portrayal and a great storyline' — Bangor Chronicle on OUR EVA 'Another cracking read with a vivid insight into family relationships' — Coventry Evening Telegraph on OUR EVA 'Once again you have given us a story that has me hooked from the first page to the last. The characters are so alive that I am loath to call them characters, they are people - so real that you almost feel for them' — Reader from Scotland on OUR MARY ANN
Anna Jacobs grew up in Lancashire and emigrated to Australia, but still visits the UK regularly to see her family and do research, something she loves. She is addicted to writing and figures she'll have to live to be 120 at least to tell all the stories that keep popping up in her imagination and nagging her to write them down. She's also addicted to her own hero, to whom she's been happily married for many years. She is the bestselling author of over sixty novels and has been shortlisted for several awards. Pride of Lancashire won the Australian Romantic Book of the Year Award in 2006, and The Trader's Wife is on the shortlist for the 2012 award.
