A heartwarming saga set in sixties Blackpool for fans of Kate Flynn, Annie Murray and Margaret Dickinson
It is the beginning of 1962, a time when four long-haired lads from Liverpool made anything seem possible. Abbie Horsfall returns to her childhood town of Blackpool with her two teenage children, hoping to start afresh following the death of her husband. But Abbie's troubled daughter, Sandie, seems determined to waste her musical talent in a wild frenzy of party going and recklessness. When Sandie persuades her boyfriend, Greg, to 'borrow' Abbie's car the tragic outcome will change their lives forever.
Margaret Thornton was born in Blackpool and has lived there all her life. She is a qualified teacher but has retired in order to concentrate on her writing. She has two children and five grandchildren. Her previous Blackpool sagas are all available from Headline and have been highly praised.
