A romantic, uplifting new saga from award-winning, critically acclaimed author Margaret Kaine, perfect for fans of Nadine Dorries, Katie Flynn, Freda Lightfoot and Pam Howes.
When her loving but strict parents pass away, twenty-one-year-old Megan is left penniless and alone. However, for the first time in her life, she finally has the freedom to explore who she really is.
She begins to come out of her shell, trying daring new things such as wearing makeup, buying modern clothes and going out dancing. Soon, she starts stepping out with a solid, dependable local man. And when she is taken under the wing of the wealthy Celia Bevington, she discovers that there is so much more to life than working as a paintress in the local pottery factory.
But as she gets to know Nathan, a dashing American visitor, she starts to question whether she should be wanting more from life. On top of that, a mysterious silver hairbrush left to her by her late mother is about to lead to revelations that will turn her world upside down . . .
When the chance comes to fulfil her every hope, will she find the courage to follow her heart?
