The Market Stall Girl by AnneMarie Brear centers around Beth Beaumont, a young woman who lives with her middle-class family on a farm and spends her day at the stall selling their fruits and vegetables. Noah Jackson is a coal miner living with his brothers, mother, and irresponsible father, but his real desire is to become a teacher and he is studying hard and taking tests to make that happen. The brothers all work underground digging out the coal, earning little and always in danger of a deadly accident collapsing the mine. Louis Melville is the richest man in the village, living in a luxurious mansion, spoiled, and thinking he can have whatever he wants in any way he can get it. Beth and Noah begin spending time together and find a deep love. But Louis has noticed Beth and wants her as his wife. Beth only has eyes for Noah and this infuriates Louis and he turns mean and dangerous to get Beth to change her mind. The results are what make this book so good and you will have to read it yourself to find out all that happens.
The Market Stall Girl is a story of romance, misfortune, and takes us back to the early-middle 1900s in Wrenthorpe, West Yorkshire, England. The Market Stall Girl was a great story and it kept my attention from the first page to the very last. I loved Beth and Noah but had only bad thoughts about Louis. AnneMarie Brear has written a story that is fiction but is very realistic and believable. I have not read any of her other books, but I have added her name to my reading list and look forward to reading book two to continue keeping up with Beth, Noah, and Louis. If you enjoy historical romance then The Market Stall Girl is a must-read!
