‘A gripping read from start to finish’ Carol Rivers, author of A Wartime Christmas
1920, Manchester. Carrie Jenkins is trying on her wedding dress, eagerly anticipating becoming Mrs Billy Shipton. But all too soon she is reeling from the news that her beloved father was shot for desertion during the Great War. When Carrie is jilted and she and her family are ostracised by the close-knit community, her plans and hopes for the future are in disarray.
Desperate to overcome her pain and humiliation, Carrie puts her faith in a man who is not to be trusted, and she will face danger and heartache before she can find the happiness she deserves.
‘Fascinating and at the same time heartbreaking … Bavin has captured this era beautifully … A wonderful debut’ Maddie Please, author of The Summer of Second Chances
