Hunter's Moon

A novel by

Hawksmoor is set amid the brooding splendour of the Yorkshire moors, a prosperous Victorian town, its throbbing mills weaving wealth for the few. Cedric Moorhouse, its new and ambitious mayor, is anxious to impress the town's most influential families. But his spirited daughter Violet refuses to fall in with his plans and instead conspires with his assistant, Tom Mallinson, to thwart and dishonour him. Moorhouse turns his back on her, forcing her to live in Hunter's Yard, a squalid and close knit community.
Desperate to escape, Violet finds solace while Tom plans revenge, discovering on the way that it is possible to love two women at the same time... but that liberty can be found with only one.

''Hawksmoor' is the fictional name for the industrial Yorkshire town of Huddersfield where I grew up,' says the author Aileen Armitage. 'I was captivated by its history and the curious fact that the town was owned by one family right up until the 1920's. My dad used to tell me tales as we walked on the surrounding moors about our family's climb from rags to riches and their subsequent decline. Can I help it if my passion for the West Riding and its history shows a story of love and hatred, tragedy and triumph?'
