Synopsis

A Mersey Mile by Ruth Hamilton

In 1955 the residents of Scotland Road fear for their futures when government plans threaten to demolish their street and tear apart their community. Polly's Parlour cafe is the centre for resistance, where strategies are formed to fight back. But when local priest Father Brennan attacks little Billy Blunt, minds are instead turned to vengeance. Frank Charleson, business entrepreneur turned local hero after saving Billy's life, finds himself increasingly fond of Polly Kennedy. But his past won't leave him. After his mother's harsh behaviour towards his previous wife, can he put Polly through the same? Polly has a hard enough life as it is. With her work in the cafe and her beloved disabled twin brother to care for, she has all but given up on having a family of her own. But can Frank provide the support she needs? And is Polly strong enough to keep their community together?

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

Sally Doel

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

Love Reading - it not only does what it says on the tin, it does it with Jam on!!

Maz Tucker

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
