9780007226085: The Child Left Behind

Bridgette has been hurt many times in her young life. Her early years were blighted by her spoilt brother; her marriage ruined by World War Two. Now her mother is dying - and then comes a deathbed revelation; somewhere Bridgette has a father and another family. Bridgette joins the war effort and shows her courage by aiding a British agent whose life is in danger, but as the war draws to a close, she is still full of questions about her past. So she sets off for Birmingham, desperately hoping to find a place where she can finally belong.

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 five grandchildren. In 2006, after sixteen years in a wheelchair, Anne was able to walk again.
