Publisher's Summary

Brand-new from Liverpool's very own best-selling author, Sheila Riley

1910 Liverpool Docks

Ruby Swift is a hard-working, straight-talking woman of substance who does not suffer fools gladly.

But when tragedy strikes on a bitter Christmas Eve, Ruby and her beloved Archie take matters into their own hands when a trusted employee’s house is mysteriously engulfed by flames and lives are lost.

Orphaned by the fire, Ruby welcomes heartbroken 16-year-old Anna Cassidy into her home and family, but circumstances conspire against them, and she is unable to save Anna's 12-year-old brother Sam Cassidy, who is sent by the church to Canada as a Homeboy.

Can Ruby help mend a broken heart, and can these two children ever be reunited, or is there another higher game in play?

Mersey Mistress takes you on a journey to another time, another place. From the banks of the River Mersey to the frozen waters of the Canadian Saint Laurence River.

"A powerful and totally absorbing family saga that is not to be missed. I turned the pages almost faster than I could read." (Carol Rivers)

waste of time.

takes ages to get anywhere, then leaves you hanging. No real conclusion. Ends like author ran out of ideas.
