Summary

Jessica Hart's life is changed forever with the death of her mother. Her manipulative new stepmother tries to force her into marrying an older man, and to Jess, a bright, pretty, young girl who dreams of finding true love, the idea of being trapped in a loveless marriage is unthinkable. So she escapes to Birmingham to her Aunt Olive, the last remaining connection to her mother.

But Jess' security is threatened when she meets a friend of the family and falls passionately in love. For handsome Ned Green is not only already married, but about to become a father any day.

Annie Murray's uplifting new saga is a moving love story of loyalty, remembrance, and, ultimately, of healing.

A good story

A great story, but for me the force of the narrator and her somewhat strident delivery made overshadowed the heart of the story.

I was also a bit puzzled about why no-one had Birmingham accents.
