Gentleman Jack




Halifax, 1832. Charismatic, swashbuckling Anne Lister determines to transform the fate of her ancestral home Shibden Hall. To do this, she must re-open her coal mines and marry well. But Anne has no intention of marrying a man. True to her own nature, she plans to marry a woman, and embarks on an epic, unconventional love story.
