Rebecca Brynabout this book: Annie is sixteen when she falls in love with Edwin. Both are underage and need their parents' permission to marry. Differences in faith, and family feuds, mean permission will never be granted and they part. When Edwin meets and falls in love with Mary Ellen, not knowing she's Annie's estranged and hated older sister, the family rift deepens and Annie's sacrifice to free Edwin from his father's disapproval is wasted. But first love is too strong to die an easy death. Edwin loves both sisters and must make a heart-wrenching decision. Who will be the winners in love?
A family saga inspired by my great-grandfather marrying sisters sixteen years before it was made legal in 1907. As devout Methodists and Baptists, what drove them to break church law?
Kindred and Affinity explores the possible reasons for what then would have been seen as assured damnation to hell. Is love stronger than faith?
'The gritty realities of life for ordinary folk grappling with moral dilemmas against a background of poverty and disease.'
'Few writers take the trouble to explore the struggles of working men and women. Fewer still can convey both the pain and the joy that accompanies true love and the acts of forgiveness that lasting love entails; such acts are the beating heart of all of Bryn's work.' - Amazon editorial review.
