Lyn Andrews' novels with Headline have sold over 2.5 million copies and appear regularly on the Sunday Times bestseller list
One of Lyn Andrews' first eight novels, transferring from the original publisher to Headline; already steady sellers, they will be targeted for a huge increase in sales.
They were called the Sisters O Donnell in County Tipperary. All with flaming red hair and tempers to match, they came to seek their fortunes in 1920s Liverpool full of ambition and hope. Gina planned to be a star of the theatre, Mary Kate wanted to find a husband. And gentle, timid Bridget just wanted to get away from the fighting around her and have a calm, peaceful life. But Liverpool wasn't what they thought it would be. Work was impossible to find and their money was running out. The O'Donnell girls had a long way to go before they could realise some of their dreams.
Lyn Andrews was born in Liverpool in 1944; her father Joseph was killed on D-Day just nine months later. Lyn was brought up in Liverpool and became a secretary before she married and gave birth to triplets. Once the children had gone to school Lyn began writing, and her first novel was quickly accepted for publication. She has since written over thirty books, many of them Sunday Times bestsellers.
Lyn lives on the Isle of Man, but spends many weeks of the year back on Merseyside, seeing her children and grandchildren.
