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 celebrated the publication of her 50th novel, BEYOND THE SUNSET, in 2010.
A compelling read - Sun on FREEDOM'S LANDImpressive grasp of human emotions. - The Sunday TimesAnna Jacobs' books are deservedly popular. She is one of the best writers of Lancashire sagas around. - Historical Novels ReviewJacobs excels at creating vivid, memorable characters. - Booklist USAVivid insight into family relationships - Coventry Evening Telegraph A gripping storyteller. - Sunday Star Times, Auckland, NZThis is a fascinating insight into a piece of Australia's history that receives little attention. - Newcastle Herald, Australia on FREEDOM'S LANDWith 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
