A Sister's Promise

 
9780007226016: A Sister's Promise

A heartrending saga of a sister separated from her baby brother by family tragedy and prejudice, who will brave the Blitz to bring him to safety

Molly’s life changes forever when her mother is killed in a horrific accident. Although her beloved grandfather wants to keep her and little brother Kevin with him in Birmingham, the authorities decide it’s best for the girl to live with her maternal grandmother, on a farm in Donegal. So Molly is packed off to Biddy Sullivan, who’s a hard, cruel woman who loves to bear a grudge.

Years of hardship follow and just as Molly begins to grow independent, war breaks out. She learns that her grandfather has died – so what’s become of Kevin? He’s only ten, and he must need her. So the naive country girl sets off for her home city, little guessing what perils are to befall her before she can discover her brother’s fate…

About the Author:

Anne Bennett was born in the Horsefair district of Birmingham. The daughter of Roman Catholic Irish immigrants, she grew up in a tight-knit community. For many years she taught in schools to the north of Birmingham, before an accident put paid to that career. This gave her the chance to write full time. She has four children and four grandchildren. In 2006, after sixteen years in a wheelchair, Anne was able to walk again.
