Local author, Diane Allen, joins us to sign copies of her new novel ‘A Precious Daughter’.
Set between the wild fells of North Yorkshire, Canada and Liverpool, A Precious Daughter is a sweeping saga following a family’s struggles in the 19th century. When Ethan Postlethwaite, his wife Grace, and their daughter Amy announce that they will be leaving the family home in the Yorkshire Dales, Grace’s parents are heartbroken. Hoping for a new life prospecting for gold in the wilds of Canada, the young family say goodbye and set sail across the Atlantic in search of a brighter future.
The journey there proves hard and treacherous, and upon arrival it becomes apparent that the riches they had been promised in the gold fields have already been plundered. So when the family suffers a devastating event, Ethan decides he must take his family back to England.
Arriving in Liverpool, work in a dairy is found, but Amy is restless and struggles to settle into yet another new life. And when a chance encounter at a cattle show ignites an old friendship, she must decide where her own future lies and what she must do in order to find happiness at last . . .
