Summary

Mary McGann's marriage has always been difficult, thanks to her husband Frank's drunken, jealous nature. Only because the little money he earns in the docks keeps food in the mouths of their children is Mary prepared to put up with him. But when Frank throws them all out on the street, Mary flees to her family in Dublin. There she meets Richard O'Neill, a handsome though solitary man. Despite the attraction between them, Mary's not looking for love, and when she hears that Frank needs her, she returns to Liverpool, foreseeing a future of yet more hardship.

But there are surprises in store. Though tragedy and danger are looming, a brighter horizon lies beyond - if Mary's prepared to be strong and take the chances that come her way.

Amazing story.

I got introduced to this author by a friend a few days a go. This is the first book i have read by her. Her writing reminds me of Josephine Cox who’s writing i love. This was a wonderful book, her writing is amazing. I have found another new writer who i think i am going to be a huge fan of. The story was really good and very sad in someways. Maries story was very gripping.
