Summary

Her strength is all she has left....

When Dorothy meets Robbie, she falls for him quickly, and it’s not long before the pair are engaged. But then an unexpected pregnancy puts everything at risk, and Dorothy is left alone - with Robbie nowhere to be seen.

Heartbroken, Dorothy picks up the pieces of her life as a working girl in Battersea, helping to support her mother and father. But before long, things start to become difficult. Her father’s health is worsening, money is tight and, worst of all, Robbie hasn’t come back for her.

Can Dorothy find a way back to happiness in the face of real adversity? Will she have the courage to make it on her own - or is someone else waiting in the wings to save her?

Gritty and moving, this is the perfect read for fans of Dilly Court and Maggie Hope.

Absolutely fantastic story & performance

I have tried to move away from this genre but without success. I am hooked on the magnificent combination of Annie Addington & Kitty Neale. unfortunately I have now listened to all of her books and now need to find a different author. This particular story if so full of content, you really get to know the characters and feel as if you can see the drama unfolding in front of your eyes. I love the history contained in the story too. Possibly the best of Kitts books although it is hard to say as they are all exceptional. 5 Stars
