Summary

Blackpool, 1893. 

Tilly has come a long way from the run-down tenements in which she grew up. She has a small but comfortable home, a loving, handsome husband, two beautiful little'uns - Babs and Beth - and she earns herself a little money weaving wicker baskets. Life is good. 

Until the day Tilly returns home to find a policeman standing on her doorstep. Her Arthur won't be coming home tonight - nor any night - having fallen to his death whilst working on Blackpool tower. 

Suddenly Tilly is her daughters' sole protector, and she's never felt more alone. With the threat of destitution nipping at their heels, Tilly struggles to make ends meet and keep a roof over her girls' heads. In a town run by men Tilly has to ask herself what she's willing to do to keep her family together and safe - and will it be enough? 

The perfect listen for fans of Mary Wood, Kitty Neale, Val Wood and Nadine Dorries

Blackpool’s Angel - Brilliant

Thoroughly enjoyed this story. I was gripped from half way through the first chapter. Can’t wait to listen to the next and then and then the concluding story.
Excellent writing and the narration made is come alive.
