One mistake can change your life…

Exeter, 1833. Since the recent cholera outbreak and the tragic loss of his little sister, Annie, young Tom Finnimore has been struggling with poverty and a dreadful new job.

Following a lovers' quarrel, in desperation, he steals some chickens but, unfortunately, is caught in the act.

After a traumatic time in prison, Tom starts again with his first love by his side. However, life with the beautiful but foolish Mary Ann doesn’t work out and Tom is left alone again, brokenhearted.

The handsome widow Phyllis gives Tom another chance of happiness, but when her family discovers the dark secret of his criminal past, they threaten to destroy him.

On the verge of retirement, the couple realise that Tom’s past could still ruin their daughter’s happiness and prevent her from marrying the man she loves.

Can Tom find peace and redemption at last?

The author is currently a teacher of English language and has a degree in Humanities with Literature. She enjoys reading 19th-century fiction, in particular Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy.

Having grown up in Devon, Alison Huntingford has always had a strong affinity to the county, despite being born elsewhere. One of her favourite pastimes is genealogy and she was therefore delighted to find an ancestor who came from Exeter in Devon. His story inspired her recent novel, The Glass Bulldog.

In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their pets, listening to music, going to the cinema and gardening.
