9780007211593: An Unsuitable Mother

A memorable saga from one of the best-loved writers of the genre. Sheelagh Kelly gives us the pain and determination of the people of York during the Second World War.

Nell is just eighteen when war breaks out, and she’s keen to do her bit - which means leaving her safe office job and starting to train as an auxiliary nurse. This will bring her into contact with women of all ages and from very different parts of society - and it will also bring her face to face with the grim realities of war. But she has a secret to comfort her - a soldier she’s met and fallen in love with, who’s promised to return to marry her.

The unthinkable happens: bombs fall on York. And for Nell, this coincides with a dreadful tragedy that she can share with nobody, and which brings life-changing consequences.

Shhelagh Kelly writes with deep feeling, evoking all the warmth and hardship of a city under siege - the city in which she was born and which she knows so well. This will thrill her numrous fans and win her many more.

About the Author:

Sheelagh Kelly was born in York. She left school at fifteen and went to work as a book-keeper. She has written for pleasure since she was a small child. Later she developed a keen interest in genealogy and history, which led her to trace her ancestors’ story, and inspired her to write her first book. She has since produced many bestselling novels.
