Endeavour Quill has acquired worldwide English language rights to AnneMarie Brear’s new book, The Tobacconist’s Wife, in eBook, paperback and audio.
AnneMarie describes herself as ‘an author of sweeping and dramatic historical novels’ and has made a name for herself largely through self-published work, such as bestselling novel The Slum Angel, winner of the Reader’s Favourite International Awards.
The Tobacconist’s Wife will be a Victorian blockbuster, centred around the troubled marriage of Thea and Ernie Goodson. When the tyrannical Ernie gets arrested for receiving stolen goods, an opportunity for Thea to run their tobacconist shop independently presents itself. But matters are complicated when the young and handsome Adam Fitzwilliam opens a shop next door, and Thea finds herself falling for him. What’s more, the rumour of a hoard of Ernie’s stolen money hidden somewhere in the shop brings much unwanted attention, and Thea doesn’t know who she can trust. One thing she does know, though, is that Ernie won’t stay locked up forever…
Endeavour Quill Publisher Alice Rees comments: AnneMarie has a rare talent for transporting readers to bygone centuries, maintaining authenticity whilst pulling off ambitious and gripping plots. That her loyal readership is largely self-grown is a credit to her writing, and we can’t wait to introduce new readers to her work.
AnneMarie Brear comments: I am extremely excited to be writing a new novel for Endeavour Quill and I look forward to working with the team on The Tobacconist’s Wife.
