A saga of great drama, wit and authenticity, depicting one Bolton family from the First World War to the 1950s, from the author of MIDNIGHT’S SMILING and THE MOON IS MY WITNESS.

Three sisters; three totally different lives. Ellen, generous and capable, runs a billiards hall with her beloved husband Reg. Louise has her eye on better things than the backstreets of Bolton; she’s off for a life in the sun with businessman Clem. And Lily, fair and fragile, has lost her feckless man to the war, and can barely cope with her two small daughters.

But whatever problems they face, the solutions are all in the family. Ellen has love to spare, and who better to lavish it on than her niece? Louise regards a child as a necessary accessory for her glamorous social position in Australia. Lily’s just plain grateful. Yet this is not how the next generation see it. By the time the world is turned inside out by the next war, two young women are set for the deadliest of rivalries as they fall for the same man…

From the Back Cover:

'Three sisters; three very different lives'

Ellen, generous, funny and capable, runs a billiards hall with her beloved Reg. Louise has her eyes set on better things than the backstreets of Bolton, and heads for a new life in Australia with her business-man husband. And Lily, fair and fragile, having lost her feckless man to the war, can barely cope with her two small daughters.

But whatever problems they face, the solutions are in the family. Ellen has love to spare, so who better to lavish it on than her niece? Louise regards a child as a necessary accessory for her glamorous social position, and as for Lily, she's just plain grateful for whatever plans her sisters can devise. Yet this is not how the next generation sees it. By the time the world is turned inside out by the next war, two young women are set for the most dangerous and vicious of rivalries – and there can be only one winner.

In this latest saga from a favourite author, Alexandra Connor has created a heartwarming story of great drama, wit and authenticity.
