Born in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, Margaret Dickinson moved to the coast at the age of seven and so began her love for the sea and the Lincolnshire landscape. Her ambition to be a writer began early and she had her first novel published at the age of twenty-five. This was followed by a number of further titles including The Clippie Girls, Fairfield Hall and Welcome Home. Margaret is a Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller. Anne's career in the entertainment industry as an actress, and a television and radio presenter spans over 30 years. However, she is best known as a narrator of audiobooks. She has now recorded over 300 books and her gift for character voices and dialects means that she is often first choice for authors having their work recorded.

Publisher Description

1919 in Ashford-in-the-Water, Derbyshire. The Ryan family are adjusting to life in the aftermath of the First World War. Walter has returned home a broken man and so it falls to his son Josh and daughter Emily to do their best to keep their family business as the village candle makers going. Josh and Emily are great friends with Thomas 'Trip' Trippet, whose father owns a cutlery manufacturing company in Sheffield, and Amy Clark, daughter of the local blacksmith. Together the foursome roams the hills and dales together. Romance blossoms for Josh and Amy while Emily falls in love with Trip but is unsure if the feeling is mutual. Their lives are changed when Trip goes to learn the family trade in Sheffield. Martha Ryan, determined that her son Josh will go up in the world, uproots her husband and children and moves them to live in Sheffield too. All Josh wants to do is to continue making candles and marry Amy. Moving into a back street court in the city is very different lifestyle for all of the Ryan family. But things start to look up when their new neighbour, Louise, helps to find Emily employment as a buffer girl.
