Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Hull, 1852. 

Matty has had to care for her three younger sisters ever since their mother’s death 10 years ago. She and the girls’ beloved father have worked hard to keep the family together, and now it’s time to celebrate as Matty turns 18 . 

But their joy is short-lived when tragedy suddenly strikes and their father disappears on his way to London. The sisters have no way of knowing what has happened to him - only that he hasn’t returned home. With little money left they’re now forced to battle life’s misfortunes alone.... 

A powerful story about the bond of sisterhood and how it can triumph against any adversity, from the Sunday Times best-selling author Val Wood.

Disappointing.

I was so looking forward to reading this latest Val wood book on Audible but I just couldn't get into it. It was Ok until they got to Italy and then it just dragged on and on. I hate to sound negative about a Val Wood novel as I am a great fan. Maybe it's because I love the Hull stories so much. I tried to keep going with this one but couldn't.
