    The Girl from Penny Lane

    81wsEjpIGBL.jpg

    Young Kitty Drinkwater lives in Paradise Court, just off Burlington Street. Life is tough in Liverpool in the years after the First World War and Kitty is always hungry and dressed in rags. As the eldest child, she is the scapegoat for her feckless, drunken mother. She dreams of a better life...

    Lilac Larkin's prospects, by contrast, are very different; she is beautiful, self-possessed young woman, and even when her pleasant job as a lady's maid comes to an end and she starts work in a bag factory, she is sure that her life will be full of promise and excitement...

    So when the two girls meet by chance in a millinery shop, neither can have any idea what changes in their lives the encounter will bring nor how strangely fate will work to bring them together once more.

    Sophie

    And yet now, here she is with a London flat, a job in television and the kind of figure that is beginning to get her noticed. Particularly by Stephen, one of the directors.

    But despite her newfound confidence, when things start to go wrong, Sophie can’t help wondering whether she’s lost a bit of herself along the way.

    51xkq7HvF2L.jpg

    It is 1900 and Adeline Warburton and Arnold Haslington have fallen deeply in love. But though both are from wealthy families, their social status is too far apart for their families to approve of the match.

    But although they are separated by thousands of miles, the consequences of their youthful passion continue to haunt them and their children – Addy’s daughter Nala and Arnold’s son, Philip.
    As the years pass, and the children grow, violent forces are set to bring them together, unaware of the secrets from the past that bind them.

    All My Fortunes

    image.jpg

    ‘Take care of Eva.’

    These words are all that remain of Pavel Fedorovna’s former life, though she can no longer remember who said them. All she knows is that they marked the end of life as she knew it - and a new beginning in the Russian Caucasus.

    Meanwhile on Deeside, young David Thomas's carefree existence is torn apart by a shipping tragedy which will colour his whole life.

    A decade later David, now an engineer and working in Russia, meets the young Pavel, just as she is emerging into womanhood. But Russia in the 1930s is no place for young lovers and the story of their struggle to be together is a powerful tale of emotion, adventure, unbelievable hardship and ultimate triumph.
