Polly, living in grinding poverty, loses her mother in childbirth and finds herself alone on the streets of Hull.

Rosalie, brought up in affluence and comfort on the other side of town, loses her own mother in similar circumstances and on the same day.

Another brilliant listen

The combination of Val Wood’s imagination and Anne Dover’s interpretation does not disappoint. Another heartwarming story, beautifully resolved. Maybe there could be a sequel...
