Through her enterprise and determination, she inadvertently earns herself a deadly enemy. Threatened and held in contempt by those she once called friends, Anneke nonetheless thrives. But on the tail of success, tragedy follows and those closest to her pay the greatest price for her daring.Ashamed, grieving, and bearing a terrible secret, Anneke flees to London, determined to forge her own destiny. Will she be able to escape her past, and those whose only desire is to see her fail?
A compelling insight into the brewer’s craft, the strength of women, and the myriad forms love can take.

This tale, although long, kept my interest throughout. It deserved better narration as the intonation was clueless, and some of the pronunciation was hilarious.
However, the content was an interesting and knowledgeable portrayal of the times, and it was worth listening to.

I love historical fiction and this is a great find. There are not many books told about a woman's life, and even fewer from the viewpoint of a non-noble woman. The story keeps you listening with its twists and turns.
