DON’T MISS THIS BRAND-NEW SPELLBINDING SAGA BY BESTSELLING AUTHOR TANIA CROSSE.
A compelling tale of secrets and betrayal, friendship and trust in a time of war.
1941. Bombs are falling all over Plymouth. Young Maisie O’Sullivan must make a choice that will change her life for ever.
Maisie O’Sullivan yearns for a family of her own. Raised in a convent-run orphanage, she believed she was all alone in the world until her very much alive father, Francis, arrives unexpectedly to take her back to live with him in Plymouth. But Francis clearly has no feelings for her, and only wants Maisie to act as his skivvy.
But Maisie is resilient. She surrounds herself with a family of her own making. Lovely old Zeek, her grandfather-like neighbour. Feisty Kitty, her inseparable friend who looks so like Maisie, they are often mistaken for sisters. Young fisherman Nick, her kind and patient boyfriend.
Now as war breaks out across Europe, Maisie increasingly seeks Nick’s steady, solid comfort. But when he volunteers for the Naval Reserve, Maisie is convinced her one chance of happiness — a home and family of her own — is slipping away.
Determined to never be alone again, Maisie makes a momentous decision that will take her life in a very unexpected direction.
Fans of Nadine Dorries, Rosie Goodwin, Dilly Court, Freda Lightfoot, Anna Jacobs, Rosie Clarke and Catherine Cookson will adore this compelling tale of secrets, betrayal and friendship spanning generations.
