Lyn Andrews' captivating saga A DAUGHTER'S JOURNEY brings the Liverpool of the 1950s and 1960s vividly to life - not to be missed by readers of Maureen Lee and Katie Flynn. Angela O'Rourke is six when her parents hand her over to an aunt and uncle in a distant village.
It's a common practice for large, hard-up families in 1950s Ireland, but for Angela it means that her mother and father don't love her any more.
Angela is well cared for until she's sixteen, but then her uncle takes to drink, and it's not safe for her stay in his house.
Moving to Liverpool in the early 1960s, she begins to make her mark in the world of fashion design.
But the pain of a disastrous love affair sends her home to Ireland just after the death of her aunt: and there, among old papers, Angela makes an astonishing discovery.
As she learns the truth about the past, a brighter new future beckons.
