Summary

The First World War is almost over when nurse Olivia Jones meets dashing American soldier, Tom O'Hagan, and they propose to marry.

But Tom is dead by the time Olivia finds herself pregnant. Just hours old, their daughter Ruby is brutally removed from Olivia by her disgusted father and secretly taken to be raised in a convent in north Wales.

At 14, Ruby is beautiful, intelligent, and wilful - and delighted to be chosen by the wealthy Emily Dangerfield, who lives in a grand house near Liverpool, as a companion.

But her charmed life there comes to an abrupt end.

Another winner from Maureen Lee

I always enjoy books by Maureen Lee and this one is no exception, the characters are well drawn and always interesting from beginning to end. I would recommend this audio book to anyone who enjoys a good family story The reader, Maggie Ollerenshaw is excellent.
