Summary

In the grand tradition of Josephine Cox, Dilly Court and Rosie Goodwin comes a powerfully heartrending new saga from Jennie Felton. A Mother's Sacrifice is a story of family secrets, romance and triumph in adversity.

Will she be able to save her children? 

Martha Packer is much loved by everyone in the village of Hillsbridge. As the landlady of The Three Feathers, she runs a respectable establishment and is known for her generosity and care for her family and others around her - she even took in two orphan girls to save them from a life of cruelty in the workhouse. 

So when Martha announces that she has killed her son, Garth, the community is shocked. Garth was undoubtedly a bad seed, but they knew how much Martha adored her firstborn. What could have driven Martha to such extreme actions?

Martha refuses to give a reason, but her other children cannot believe their mother is capable of murder and they begin to believe that she is protecting someone - maybe even one of them....

Don't miss Jennie's Families of Fairley Terrace series, which began with Maggie's story in All the Dark Secrets and continued with Lucy's story in The Miner's Daughter, Edie's story in The Girl Below Stairs, Carina's story in The Widow's Promise and Laurel's story in The Sister's Secret.
