The North of England, 1831.
The working class are gathering. Rebellion is stirring, and the people are divided.
Beatrice Lightfoot, a young woman fighting her own personal rebellion, is looking for an opportunity to change her luck. When she gains the attention of the enigmatic Captain Hanley, he offers her a tantalising deal to attend the May Day dance. She accepts, unaware of the true price of her own free will.
Her subsequent entanglement with Joshua Mason, the son of a local merchant, draws all three into a destructive and dangerous relationship, which threatens to drag Beatrice, and all she knows into darkness.
Now, Beatrice must choose between rebellion, love and survival before all is lost, and the Northern uprising changes her world forever.

Ropewalk; Rebellion. Love. Survival
There are some books that you say that you can’t put down, just for the sake of a review, and there are others that you honesty could not unglue from your hands. This is the type of novel that will have you sat on the edge of your seat, or rooting for the characters to end up together because they are simply perfect for each other.
The perfect gentleman, the perfect man, Joshua belongs with Bea, but he is upper class and she is not. He is such a wonderful person that I just wanted to push him and Bea together and let them be together while I warded off everyone who was trying to keep them apart.
Besides the obvious romance and longing, there is intense drama, the life threatening kind that had me on the edge of my seat. The author has written the story brilliantly and I am so glad with the way I spent my time in reading this book!

Hayley and her partner lived in Ulverston for three years and spent her weekends walking along the Ropewalk and down by the old harbour. She became inspired by the spirit of the area and stories that had taken place along the historic streets.
As a teacher, Hayley had loved the art of storytelling by studying drama and theatre. The power of the written word, how it can transport the reader to another world or even another time in history. But it wasn't until living in Ulverston did she discover a story worth telling. From that point, the characters became alive and she fell in love with the story.
