A captivating saga set on the eve of WWII in Liverpool, where life for one girl is about to change forever. Molly's mother died when she was just a child and she helped her grief-stricken father look after their tiny home in their tight-knit Liverpool street.
Lacking confidence, Molly's always felt in the shadow of her sister June, but as the Second World War breaks out, she sees a chance to do her bit. Enlisting in the Women's Voluntary Service, Molly is terrified of what lies ahead, but she also meets Eddie and lives for the time they spend together.
In their snatched moments when Eddie is on leave from the Navy, the two of them happily plan their future. After tragedy strikes, Molly's dreams are snatched away, but she knows there is more at stake that one broken heart.
Molly wants to be brave like her mother would have wanted her to be - can she find the courage to carry on for the sake of her country and her family? A Mother's Blessing was first published in 2006 with the title Goodnight Sweetheart.
