From Liverpool's best-loved author comes a superb novel of loss and grief, love and hope, set on Merseyside in 1920. When her husband dies suddenly, Louise Gilmore and her daughters Edna and Celia are left with nothing but debts. Forced to move from their fine Liverpool house with servants to a run-down cottage in Hoylake, the three women must learn to make their way in an entirely new world. Although they live with fear, uncertainty and even despair, the women find there are also unexpected opportunities in store. This is a heartwarming story of family relationships and a powerful portrait of a nation changed forever by the Great War.
