Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Liverpool, 1868. 

Shrouded in secrecy, Alice Sampson gives birth to a beautiful baby girl. 

But the former nurse's happiness is blighted by the knowledge that as a penniless, unwed mother, her future, and that of her child, can only be one of shame and disgrace. 

Then a knock at the door brings a miracle: she is invited to return to the Liverpool Royal Infirmary and her beloved ward. 

With the help of her friends and the welcome attentions of Reverend Seed, the hospital Chaplain, Alice slowly starts to rebuild her life. 

But her hopes are shattered when her baby's father unexpectedly shows up to claim the child he knew nothing about. 

Suddenly Alice is in danger of losing her baby, her position and her whole future.

Once you start to listen to this book you don’t want to stop, it’s so down to earth and very addictive. So sad when it ended
