The Miner's Wife, Paperback / softback Book

The Miner's Wife Paperback / softback

Description

Set in the Yorkshire Dales during the 19th century, The Miner's Wife by Diane Allen is a sweeping historical saga novel. Nineteen-year-old Meg Oversby often dreams of a more exciting life than the dull existence she faces at her family's farm deep in the Yorkshire Dales.

Growing up, she's always sensed her father's disappointment at not having a son to help with the farm work.

So when Meg dances all night at the local market hall with Sam Alderson, a lead miner from Swaledale, a new light enters her life.

Sam and his brother Jack show Meg a side to life she didn't know existed.

But when her parents find out, she's forbidden from ever seeing them again.

Although where there is love, there is often a way. When Meg's uncle offers her the chance of helping to run the small village shop, she leaps at the opportunity, seeing it as a way to escape the oppressive family farm and see more of her beloved Sam.

But as love blossoms, a darker truth emerges and Meg realizes that Sam may not be the man she thought he was . . .
