Publisher Description

She gave them everything and asked for nothing in return...

Rita Bradshaw's heart-stopping saga, Eve and Her Sisters, is a captivating tale of poverty, family and unrequited love. Perfect for fans of Dilly Court and Kitty Neale.

Following their father's death in a mining accident, sisters Eve, Mary and Nell journey to the Michaelmas fair at Gateshead to be put up for hire - it is that or face the workhouse. Eve, who has looked after her younger sisters since their mother's death, cannot bear the thought of them being separated so she is indebted to innkeeper, Caleb Travis, when he takes pity on her and agrees to hire them all.

Over the years, Eve's gratitude towards him turns to love, but Caleb is blind to Eve's feelings as he is infatuated with Mary. It is to take many more years of heartache before he realises his mistake...

An excellent read.

The moment you begin the book, you know things are going to be trying to say the least for Eve and her sisters. The heroine of the story, Eve, a hard working, caring soul, sister to her two young siblings, had motherhood thrust upon her when the sisters lose their remaining parent and brothers in a mining disaster. Eve loves her siblings, the homely Nell who was born to be a loving wife and mother some day, and the wayward Mary, the beauty of the family who thinks only of herself, who gets into so much trouble, one wonders how she manages to make it to adulthood. As the story unfolds, it is hard to imagine how much emotional pain and misfortune young Eve can bear. The youngsters are evicted from their home and taken in by a neighbouring family after the breadwinners are killed. Disaster strikes and Eve is forced to uproot her siblings and flee from the family she thought she could trust. The workhouse beckons if she cannot find employment and somewhere the three girls can live together. The story has a few twists and turns and always keeps the reader wanting more. This is a book that is difficult to put down, a great story which has a good mix of good fortune and tragedy.
