9780007724475: Midnight's Smiling

A powerful and gripping saga of three generations of Salford doctors from the author of THE MOON IS MY WITNESS.

The gracious old house called Aynhams stood in its own estate on the outskirts of Pendleton. Only a few miles, but a lifetime away, from the slums of Salford.

It was George Cochrane’s home. Here he led a comfortable life with his wife and shy son, Michael. By day, he was doctor to the worst streets of Salford; no household was too dismal, no patient too poor. Everyone loved him and his gruff humour. Then his wife died.

Somehow, Michael could never follow in his footsteps. Although he became a conscientious doctor, his friend Harry Chadwick overshadowed him. Bumptious and brilliant, Harry had fought his way up from the filthiest backstreets the city could boast, and nothing was going to stop him reaching the top. The Second World War made his name; while Michael volunteered for the Front, Harry turned Aynhams into a world-famous clinic.

Who could hold a candle to him? One rival was watching, biding her time, acknowledging his ambition and ability for her own. Michael’s daughter, Mel.

MIDNIGHT’S SMILING is a gritty family saga full of passion, conflict and warm humour, sure to delight all readers of the genre.

From the Back Cover:

IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH.

The gracious old house stood in its own estate on the outskirts of Pendleton, only a few miles, but a lifetime away, from the slums of Salford. Here Dr George Cochrane led a comfortable life with his wife and shy son, Michael. By day, he was doctor to the worst streets of the nearby city; no household was too dismal, no patient too poor.
Everyone loved him and his gruff humour. Then his wife died.

Somehow, Michael could never make up for the loss. Although he followed in his father's footsteps, his friend Harry outshone him. Bumptious, brilliant Harry: born in the filthiest backstreet Salford could boast, aiming for the top. The Second World War made his name.

Who could hold a candle to him? One young rival was watching, biding her time, acknowledging his ambition and ability as her own. Michael's daughter, Mel.

Praise for Alexander Connor's 'The Moon is My Witness':
