Widowed; poor; childless; the outlook is grim for Vi . . . The gripping new novel from Anna Jacobs.
The Great War opened up an exciting new career for Vi in London. But that was yesterday. Now, the war's over, her husband is dead and she needs to pick up the pieces of her life.
On her way home she meets a man who needs her help. Recently demobbed, Joss Bentley has no job or home, and with his wife dead, there's a new baby to care for and it's not his.
As he searches grimly for its real father, he runs up against people who will use any means necessary to conceal dark secrets . . . and Vi finds herself faced with conflicting loyalties. Whichever way she moves, it seems she'll hurt someone or they'll hurt her . . .

Anna Jacobs grew up in Lancashire and emigrated to Australia, but still visits the UK regularly to see her family and do research, something she loves. She is addicted to writing and figures she'll have to live to be 120 at least to tell all the stories that keep popping up in her imagination and nagging her to write them down. She's also addicted to her own hero, to whom she's been happily married for many years.
She is the bestselling author of over eighty novels and has been shortlisted for several awards, and Pride of Lancashire won the Australian Romantic Book of the Year Award in 2006.
