Publisher's Summary

Annie Swinburn had killed a man - the killing was timely and well-deserved, for Francis Morton had been evil in every possible way. But Annie knew that however justified her crime, only the rope and the gibbet awaited her if she remained in the slums of Hull. And so she ran - up river, along the wild and secretive paths of the great Humber - a new and unfamiliar territory which was to lead her into a new and unfamiliar life.
Her first refuge was with Toby Linton, well-born, estranged from his father and - with his brother Matt - earning a dangerous living as a smuggler. Annie led a double life, as a smuggler, and as a pedlar roaming the remote countryside of the Wolds. It was this new existence which led her, once more, into allowing herself to love, in spite of all the things that had gone before.

Brilliant

Oh my goodness me what a wonderful story expertly read by Anne Dover. I love books written by Val Wood and can't wait to listen to another. Once again, I know the area so well and Val Wood has a way of describing the beauty of the Wolds that I felt that I was there. From the sad beginning of the story to the happy ending I couldn't stop listening.
