What would you do if your best friend was about to risk everything?
In the North of England in1938, two ten-year-old girls, Lily Hetherington and Stella Marsden, form a close if unlikely friendship that endures despite their wartime experiences. After the war, the two women are working as nursing auxiliaries when Lily meets male nurse Will Bagshaw. Stella begins to hear sinister rumours about the man, but the besotted Lily won’t listen to a word said against him. Can Stella make her see sense before it’s too late?
Building to a tense, dramatic climax, this is a story of friendship, love, loyalty and the ultimate betrayal.
A must for fans of Daphne Du Maurier, Patricia Highsmith, James Neff and Lisa Gardner.
"Towards the Vanishing Point brings attention to an important topic. Lily suffers emotional and physical abuse from her husband...The language and happenings in the story reflect effectively what it would have been like to live during and post-World War II UK. ..a moving novel."
