Show Summary

In 1832, the landowner and industrialist Anne Lister returns to her ancestral home, Shibden Hall, in Halifax, West Yorkshire, after an extended period of travel, study and social climbing. To transform the fate of her faded ancestral home and restore Shibden Hall to its former glory, Anne must re-open her coal mines and marry well. But Lister has no intention of marrying a man. True to her own nature, she plans to marry a woman. The story examines Anne’s relationships at home with her family, her servants, her tenants and her industrial rivals; and most importantly, with her would-be-wife, the wealthy heiress Ann Walker.

    It's the election of January 1835, and revolution is in the air in Halifax. Returned to Shibden Hall and determined to move on from Mariana Lawton, Anne Lister throws herself into furthering the Tory cause.

    With rumblings of discontent from Radicals looking to dismantle the traditional seats of power, it's clear this won't be an easy win for Anne's party, but the violence and lawlessness of how the election unfolds horrifies everyone.

    Meanwhile, after a wall of silence from her sister, Ann Walker is stunned to learn that, at such a volatile time, the Sutherlands have ordered evictions on their shared property. With this, and Anne Lister's refusal to keep a low profile, the couple are drawing dangerous attention to themselves, and their relationship.
