England is at war, but nothing can ruin Esther Wynford's happiness at marrying Monty Grant. Their short honeymoon results in a baby, but on the birth of her daughter, Joy, Esther's world falls apart. Esther's dying mother confesses to a dark secret: Esther is not her natural daughter but the result of an exchange of babies after her own child was stillborn.
Esther's real mother was being forced to give up her baby to an orphanage, and Joy's birth makes the reason clear. Harshly rejected by Monty, she takes her precious baby and leaves everything and everyone she's ever known, determined to fend for herself and her child. But her fight is just beginning....

Like a good old fashioned story,or a true crime book. Something not drawn out or a slow storyline.
I was gripped from the first chapter became predictable but still a great read.
I could not pick a favourite all added some things
how difficult it was in years gone by and how money tries to talk.
the fact she stood up to her prejudiced father
no, but looking to download another
yes - couldn't put it down.
it was like no other story I have read.
the north east accent made me feel as though I was there watching the action.
I shed a little tear when Esther read the letter from Ruth.
I was enthralled from beginning to end and now going to listen to another audiobook by Rita Bradshaw.
