The new Liverpool saga from Heinemann and Arrow's star saga writer.
Katie Flynn has lived for many years in the Northwest. Many of her early stories were broadcast on Radio Mersey, and the reminiscences of family members prompted her to start her very successful series of books about Liverpool. She has also written books as Judith Saxton.
In the 1930s Liverpool midwife Patty Peel delivers a baby girl in a filthy slum just as the mother dies and the drunk, violent father tells Patty to give the baby to an orphanage. But Patty, who spent an unhappy childhood in an institution, decides to bring up the child alone, not realising how the baby will change her life forever.
