Even love seems possible again ...But then a face from the violent past turns up to disrupt Connie's new life and shatter her dreams. All she has built up is threatened -- and she herself is in physical danger. It will take every ounce of the courage she possesses to overcome the odds -- and a little help from old friends and new ...

About the Author:

Annie Groves lives in the North-West and has done so of all her life. This is the second in a series of novels about the adventures of the Pride family of Preston, which take place in the tumultuous years leading up to, during, and after the First World War, and for which she has drawn upon her own family's history, picked up from listening to her grandmother's stories when she was a child. Her grandmother's great pride in her hometown - Preston - inspired Annie when naming her fictional family.

Review:

PRAISE FOR ANNIE GROVES: 'An engrossing story.' My Weekly 'A stirring and heartrending family saga...Against a backdrop of change when the suffragette movement was coming to the fore, the choices and dreams of a generation of women combine to create this passionate story.' Liverpool Daily Post 'Heartwrenching and uplifting in equal measure -- a tragic indictment of what can happen when you swap passion for duty. Roll on the sequel!' Take a Break Fiction Feast
