It's 1956, and while many women are doing jobs they'd never dreamed of before the war, Molly Hawkins is chained firmly to the kitchen sink. Her husband Brian believes his wife's place is in the home, but is too idle to seek regular employment for himself. Molly worries that her six-year-old daughter Rosa is going without, but is willing to sacrifice luxuries - and her own happiness - for her little girl to have a dad.

Then a family friend dies suddenly, leaving Molly a share in a successful pottery business. To Brian's horror, it's on condition that Molly takes a job at the pottery. Seizing the chance to bring in much needed income, Molly accepts the position, and soon gains strength from her new-found independence. It's a strength she will need to take her through the tragedy that lies ahead...

Product Description:

Caring mother Molly Hawkins struggles against the prejudices of the 1950s with tragic consequences, in this poignant London saga from bestselling author Pamela Evans

Review:

'Evans has a real fell for the people and places of the South East. In this colourful picture of life in post-war London there is a trong sense of community and a finely drawn illustration of the tension caused by the changing role of women in society... Warm, entertaining and peopled with lovable characters' Lancashire Evening Post (Lancashire Evening Post)
