Summary

The first installment in the breathtaking Kershaw Sisters series.

They say you only regret the things you don't do.... 

Lizzie Kershaw is an independent spirit; ever since her father's death she has had to be a survivor. Home life is harsh, though, and desperate to escape it, she makes an ill-advised marriage. But she discovers all too quickly that she's married a selfish and violent man. His beatings never seem to stop, and she soon comes to a decision: she must run far, far away. 

With the help of some suffragettes she escapes to Manchester, where she finds work in a munitions factory - she is finally the independent woman she has always longed to be. But her husband, whose cruelty knows no bounds, tracks her down and drags her back home to more beatings than ever. 

But when his violence causes her to lose the one thing she's always wanted, Lizzie knows she must find the strength to make the changes in her life that are so sorely needed.

A brilliant story

As usual, Anna Jacobs has written a great story and Patricia Gallimore read it so well- all those different voices! Poor Lizzie but I was so glad that everything ended happily.

A Great Love Story

It was a wonderful well written and beautifully narrated book. The characters so well drawn on life before and during the First World War. Lizzie who comes through the toughest of childhoods and marries the worse kind of man, who survives it all. This book so hard to put down.
