THE TRADER'S WIFE is the first novel in much-loved author Anna Jacobs' wonderful new series 'The Traders', set in the Orient and Australia's Swan River Colony. Perfect for fans of Catherine Cookson.
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 eighty novels and has been shortlisted for several awards, and Pride of Lancashire won the Australian Romantic Book of the Year Award in 2006. You can find out more on her website, www.annajacobs.com or on her Facebook page, www.facebook.com/Anna.Jacobs.Books.
With more than 50 mostly romance books under her (garter) belt, the author is more than adept at spinning a yarn and her characters, surprisingly enough, are a particularly engaging lot... whose back stories, which run to petty jealousies, domestic violence and even murder, are carried along nicely by Jacobs' pacy writing and eye for historical detail. As romantic fiction goes, this one's a winner. * The Daily Telegraph * This is a fascinating insight into a piece of Australia's history that receives little attention. * Newcastle Herald, Australia on FREEDOM'S LAND * 'A gripping storyteller.' * Sunday Star Times, Auckland, NZ * Vivid insight into family relationships * Coventry Evening Telegraph * Jacobs excels at creating vivid, memorable characters. * Booklist USA * Anna Jacobs' books are deservedly popular. She is one of the best writers of Lancashire sagas around. * Historical Novels Review * Impressive grasp of human emotions. * The Sunday Times * 'A compelling read' * Sun on FREEDOM'S LAND *
