Summary

Mary Kate Malone runs away to Liverpool and into all kinds of trouble in this sequel to Shadows In Heaven - from the best-selling author of The Four Streets trilogy and the Lovely Lane series.

Liverpool, 1963. Mary Kate Malone is 17 and bitterly unhappy that her father has married again after the death of her mother. On her last day at school, she decides to leave home in Tarabeg on the west coast of Ireland and head for Liverpool to find her mother's sister. But absolutely nothing goes to plan. Within hours of disembarking, she finds herself penniless and alone, with no place to stay and no idea how she will survive. Meanwhile, back in Ireland, where old sins cast long shadows, a long-buried secret is about to come to light and a day of reckoning, in the shape of a stranger from America, will set an unstoppable chain of events in motion.

Yet another great book from Nadine, I really hope there is a follow on. through out heartbreak & tears there is such humour. I do love the characters & the sense of community in Tarabeg & Liverpool. I love the Narrative too, such great ascents & feelings her her voice. Excellent.

Easy listening

As usual Nadine’s book tell a wonderful story incorporating history-with a sense of humour but also a stark reminder of how tough life used to be for some. Can’t wait for the next book/instalment of the Malibu family. The narrator has an excellent Irish accent but the Liverpool accent didn’t quite fit.
