Red-haired, intelligent and startlingly pretty, Annie soon finds herself banished from home by a jealous stepmother. She finds work in the local doctor's household where she learns about the fascinating world outside Salem Street. And when
her adored childhood friend, Matt, asks her to marry him Annie thinks her dreams are coming true.

But Annie has not left trouble behind. Someone is trying to undermine her business. Her family

It's 1848 and preparations are underway for Annie Gibson's wedding to
millowner, Frederick Hallam. But not everyone is as pleased as they are. Frederick's daughter, Beatrice, is horrified at the prospect of a new attractive stepmother arriving at the house on Ridge Hill. Even Annie's own family feels threatened. The only person who seems
please is Tom, Annie's brother. Soon, however, real troubles begin to pile up for the Gibsons. Tom's happiness is
jeopardised by the news that he is

But worries - at first faint clouds on the horizon - are imminent. Frederick has been looking pale and ill lately. Her brother Tom hasn't moved on after the death of his wife. Rebecca, her half-sister, is longing for something more than her work in the salon. And William, her son, isn't happy at
university. In spite of Frederick's gentle urging not to take the entire burden of the Gibson family on her shoulders, Annie can't help feeling concerned.
And something much more dangerous is looking - a threat not only to Annie's peace of
mind, but to her life...
