The Hills and the Valley by Janet Tanner

The spell-binding story of a girl catapulted by fate into maturity - and of a close-knit mining community caught up in the horror and hardship of war.

At seventeen it seems that Barbara, youngest of the Hall clan, has the world at her feet. She is pretty, she is mischievous, and she has grown up wanting for nothing.

But the carefree idyll is about to end with the suddenness of a summer storm. For a shadow of which she knows nothing hangs over her charmed life; a long dark shadow from the past threatening her happiness and denying her the one man she truly loves. And in the world outside the Hillsbridge valley the clouds of war are gathering . . .

About the Author

Janet Tanner is a prolific and well-loved author and has twice been shortlisted for RNA awards. Many of her novels are multi-generational sagas, and some - in particular the Hillsbridge Quartet - are based on her own working class background in a Somerset mining community. More recently, she has been writing historical and well-received Gothic novels for Severn House - a reviewer for Booklist, a trade publication in the United States, calls her "a master of the Gothic genre".

Besides publication in the UK and US, Janet's books have also been translated into dozens of languages and published all over the world. Before turning to novels she was a prolific writer of short stories and serials, with hundreds of stories appearing in various magazines and publications worldwide.
