Description of this Book
Can a chance meeting lead to fresh starts for Lillian and Blaise, or will hidden secrets threaten their new beginnings? Liverpool, 1925 Fourteen-year-old Lillian Taylor has spent her childhood in a loveless orphanage after the death of her mother. When a well-dressed young woman claiming to be her aunt arrives and whisks her away to her large townhouse, Lillian hopes it signals a change in her fortunes. However there's more to Aunt Joan than meets the eye and when Joan discovers Lillian's budding romance with one of her co-workers she swiftly threatens his family. Events take a tragic turn when Joan becomes ill and reveals the secrets she's been keeping that will change Lillian's life forever. Ireland, 1954 Best friends Blaise and Clodagh are packing their bags as they prepare for their new life training as nurses in England. Through a chance encounter, Blaise meets Lillian Taylor - a middle-aged woman struggling to look after her seasick grandson. After struggling with her duties at St Thomas's Hospital and feeling down on her luck, Blaise decides to look Lillian up. Starting over in Liverpool, she hopes that being a private nurse for Lillian's grandson will signal the fresh start she's been hoping for. But when a mysterious man appears one day, Blaise realises long-hidden skeletons are about to finally come out of the cupboard and truths revealed after all these years.
