Summary

Pretty Alice Lacey couldn't be more different from her sister-in-law; bitter, ambitious Cora. Alice is happily married to John Lacey, Cora to his hapless younger brother, Billy. Both women give birth to sons on one chaotic night in war-torn Liverpool, but Cora's jealousy and resentment prompt her to swap her puny baby for Alice's beautiful son...

Maureen Lee was born in Bootle. She has had numerous short stories published and a play professionally staged, though it was not until the youngest of her three sons left school that she was able to write full-time.

Engaging and Enjoyable

This is a long but totally engaging and well written book with well drawn and believable characters and it leaves the reader wanting to read more. The narrator was accurate, easy to listen to and perfect for the book. This is not my usual type of book but this was a very enjoyable listen and I will buy more books by this author.
