A powerful and compelling Liverpool saga of one woman's life from bestselling author Maureen Lee
For Josie Flynn, life with her beautiful, wayward mother in the heart of Liverpool was all she ever wanted - until Hitler's bombs ripped her childhood apart. But the War was just the start of a journey - a journey that began in heartbreak when Josie was sent to live with her miserable Aunt Ivy and over-friendly Uncle Vince; took her to Barefoot House as the paid companion of an elderly, cantankerous woman who eventually became her friend; and seemed to promise life-long happiness in New York with the handsome, charismatic Jack Coltrane.
But once again, life is not turning out the way Josie imagines and she finds herself back in Liverpool, alone. As she renews old loves and former friendships, and reflects on her time at Barefoot House, she embarks upon a career which is as unlikely as it is successful.
