9780002261234: The Willow Pool

The long-awaited Liverpool-at-war novel from an author whose tales of love and loss, passion and pain during the great wars are in a class of their own.

From Elizabeth Elgin, whose tales of love and loss during the great wars are in a class of their own, comes a captivating story of passion and pain.

Against the background of bomb-ravaged Liverpool, Meg Blundell mourns the death of her beloved mother. She is nineteen, father unknown, her past veiled in mystery by her Ma. Why, she wonders, does the rent man never call at No.1 Tippet's Yard? He does everywhere else. Why did Ma avoid talk of her father, but speak only of the idyllic house called Candlefold – a haven and a heaven to her?

With Ma gone, Meg must go back to her roots; and in the long sweet summer of 1941 find and lose love.

From the Back Cover:

The long-awaited Liverpool-at-wat novel from an author whose tales of love and loss, passion and pain during the great wars are in a class of their own.

It is 1940 and recently bereaved Meg Blundell is planning a future without her delightful Ma. But before Meg can take her first steps into the unknown alone, she must look to her past.

Why, she wonders, did her mother wear a wedding ring but never marry? Why, for instance does the tally man never call at No.3 Tippet's Yard to collect any rent? He does everywhere else. With Ma gone, Meg must go back to her roots to uncover her 'family tree'. However the process of simplifying her life leads to unforeseen complications. But there's always Kip, reliable and loving, to pick up the pieces of her unsolved life and love.
