Summary

Timeless family drama from the best-selling author of Tuppence to Cross the Mersey. With over 3 million copies sold around the world, Helen Forrester’s hard-hitting and gripping fiction set in Liverpool continues to move readers.

Under the roof of her bright, vivacious mother Elizabeth, and prosperous businessman Humphrey Woodman, Alicia Woodman’s life should have been comfortable and happy.

However, when a shocking discovery turns her life upside down, Alicia finds herself alone and facing hardship. It is left to Polly Ford, the widow of a dock worker, to care for Alicia and give her the love she so desperately needs.

In a hypocritical society full of thin-lipped disapproval, Alicia learns that the human spirit can endure through adversity and love makes for the strongest relationships of all.

Perfect story telling

I've previously read the book and enjoyed it so much I wanted to listen to the audio while working. It's a great story, well narrated, you won't regret it!
