‘This is one of the best books I’ve ever read’ – 5-star reader review

The unputdownable saga from the author of A PENNYWORTH OF SUNSHINE and DOWN WEAVERS LANE.

Calico Road runs through a tiny Lancashire hamlet up on the edge of the moors, miles from anywhere. Its folk are an independent breed – and in 1827 they are a thorn in the side of the vicious mill owner in the valley below.

Toby Fletcher’s father ignored his bastard son while alive. Now Toby is the new owner of the rambling old inn, an unwitting keeper of its secrets. Then Meg Staley comes to Calico – a woman who was strong enough to survive one tragedy, but found it harder to withstand a second blow. Toby finds her wandering the moors, cold and starving, and brings her back to the inn. Working there, Meg starts to rebuild her life and find a fragile happiness.

But then the secrets of Calico Road come crashing down on her and those she has grown to love . . .
