Summary

A powerful new saga, in the grand tradition of Katie Flynn, Dilly Court and Josephine Cox, of one woman's quest for happiness after a bitter tragedy, filled with romance, drama and triumph in adversity. 

When terrible tragedy strikes at the local colliery, the residents of Fairley Terrace's 10 houses suffer more than one loss, and for Maggie Donovan the word turns upside down. Turning for comfort to the one man she can trust, she finds a sudden and undeniable passion instead. But any future with Josh Withers seems a betrayal of her past, and Maggie realises the only way to survive is to conceal a very dark secret of her own....

Brilliant listen.

I very much enjoyed the whole story. liked the history of days gone by. Most with the exception of one character.
A twist that I never knew was coming.
Definitely recommend and want to listen to more stories by the author and narrator too.
