About the Book

Timeless family drama from the best-selling author of Tuppence to Cross the Mersey. With over 3 million copies sold around the world, Helen Forrester’s heart-warming and gripping fiction, set in Liverpool during the Depression, continues to move readers.

Life in a Liverpool tenement block is a grim struggle for Martha Connelly, who works hard every day to protect her family from hunger and disease.

When rumours of war reach the neighbourhood in 1938, it becomes clear that life will soon be changed forever. As tough as it is, this is the life that Martha knows and loves — she’ll fight not to lose it, but will she succeed?

Despite their troubles, the community is full of warmth and support from friends and neighbours. Through hardships and small triumphs, they’ll strive to survive together.
