A Mother’s Hope

By

Rose and Martin make a mismatched pair—a single pregnant girl, an albino boy, and their stray greyhound, Don. But from the moment they meet on a rain-soaked road, their destinies are entwined forever. Romance is not on the cards but friendship is, and when Rose discovers she is in danger of having her baby removed from her care, Martin is the one she turns to for help. Fleeing from Liverpool, the runaways take their chances in Wales looking for work and a settled future. Events conspire against them, but, given a chance, friendship might just deepen into love.

Katie Flynn’s Liverpool sagas are always such a joy to read, and once you open the covers it is very hard to close them again. Without fail her heroes and heroines come to life within the pages—warts and all. Best of all, her sagas give the reader a good dollop of nostalgia without overdosing with melodrama. A Mother’s Hope is an accomplished and satisfying read.
