LIVERPOOL LOU by Lyn Andrews is a warm-hearted, dramatic and nostalgic saga not to be missed by readers of Kate Thompson and Donna Douglas.

Babsey has always worked hard to provide for her family; she runs a greengrocers publicly and a money-lending business in private. Babsey makes sure that her family doesn't mix with the rougher people in the neighbourhood - she considers herself a cut above the local community. When her niece Louisa needs a home - her mother is dead, and her father at sea - Babsey does her duty and brings the girl into the household.

But Louisa doesn't quite fit in with Babsey's plans. Although life under Aunt Babsey's roof is comfortable, Louisa is acutely aware of the desperate poverty around her. And, as she grows up into a thoughtful young woman, the harsh realities of love and betrayal, war and death, make her determined to find her own way.

Louisa will eventually be made famous throughout her city - known for ever as Liverpool Lou. And she might just find love along the way...

Book Description:

In this delightful Merseyside saga spanning two world wars, Louisa sets out to make her own way in the world despite her aunt's determination to control her. From the bestselling author of THE HOUSE ON LONELY STREET and FROM LIVERPOOL WITH LOVE.

From the Back Cover:

Aunt Babsey considered herself a cut above her neighbours on Everton Ridge. For one thing she was 'trade' - she ran a greengrocery shop in public, and a money-lending business in private. She taught her children to be respectable, keep up appearances, and not to mix with people like the Crowleys who were both Catholic and Irish. She ruled her family with a rod of iron. Fourteen-year-old Louisa was the only one who didn't quite fit into the family scheme of things. Louisa, with her mother dead and her father away at sea, was becoming increasingly conscious that while Aunt Babsey's family was comfortable enough, all around them was hardship and the grinding poverty of the thirties. As she grew up into a graceful and gentle young woman, so the tough conditions of Liverpool began to impinge on her life - love, war, betrayal, death - all made her determined to seek her own path, both in the man she loved, and the work she wanted to do - work which would eventually make her famous throughout her city as Liverpool Lou.
