A girl whose family can't seem to find a way to love her is the heroine of this poignant saga set in Scotland in the 1930s. 'In the tradition of Catherine Cookson.' Liverpool Post

Dark-haired and slender, Lois Pringle has always known that she's the odd one out in her family. Her mother makes it only too plain that she prefers Lois's two plump, flaxen-haired sisters.
But Lois manages to escape a life of household drudgery by going to work as a secretary for wealthy John Latimer. By this time she has blossomed into a beauty, attracting the attention of several admirers including her elder sister Marie's young man, the well-connected Stephen Hammond. It is a situation that is bound to cause resentment and heartache.
For there are shameful family secrets in Lois's past: secrets that are finally revealed with the most unpredictable and far-reaching consequences.
The Northern Echo loved this book: 'A stirring tale, rich in heartache and warmth with an unquenchable zest for life.'
