Halifax, 1876. On the death of her mother and sister, Isabelle Gibson is left to fend for herself and her brother in a privately-run workhouse. After the matron's son attacks her, Isabelle decides to escape him and a life of drudgery by agreeing to marry a moorland farmer she has never met. But this man, Farrell, is a drunkard and a bully in constant feud with his landlord, Ethan Harrington.
When Farrell bungles a robbery and deserts her, Isabelle and Ethan are thrown together as she struggles to save the farm. Both are married and must hide their growing love. But despite the secrecy, Isabelle draws strength from Ethan as faces from the past return to haunt her and a tragedy is set to strike that will change all of their lives forever.
Set in Victorian Yorkshire, Isabelle’s Choice is a roller coaster of a read. The main character Isabelle’s is put through some very difficult times, but with a strength of character she didn’t know she had, she manages to turn from a wilful girl into a strong and resilient woman that forges her own destiny through heartbreak and loss. - review by author Lynda Stacey.
