Summary

A captivating new novel from the best-selling author of A Daughter’s Journey and Days of Hope

When best friends Dee Campbell and Jean Williams leave school, in 1959, it feels like every opportunity awaits them. Their families haven't long moved from a rundown part of the city to leafy Kirkby when Jean's father wins the Irish sweepstake and soon Jean's set up her own hairdressing salon, while both girls have fallen for good-looking lads with prospects. It's hard to imagine being any happier. But Dee's father is about to discover a disturbing truth about her fiancé. With one revelation, the Campbells are torn apart. As Dee flees to Ireland, Jean marries Tony, blissfully unaware that she's not the only pretty girl to catch his eye....

Tumultuous years lie ahead. But true friendship lasts a lifetime - and Dee and Jean will learn that the people who love you will always be there when you need them most.

Lovely story.

Had this book for ages and have just listened to it again. Lovely story, and especially loved the references to the Irish waterways.
