Summary

Manchester, 1920. Carrie Jenkins reels from the revelation that her beloved father was shot for desertion during the Great War, not tragically killed in heroic action, as she had previously been led to believe.

Worse, Carrie's sweetheart jilts her on the eve of their wedding, despite her pregnancy. Facing some tough choices and needing to provide a home for her baby and invalid mother, Carrie is forced to accept the unsettling advances of Ralph Armstrong. It is a decision she will regret.

not a enjoyable story

first time reading from this author and I didn't Really enjoy the writing or the story the characters are really bad or really dumb no in between the story didn't hold my interest and it's started to get boring instead of getting better the best part about this story is the narrator
