A Mersey Mile Synopsis

Scotland Road would never be the same ...In 1955 Scotland Road residents fear for their futures when government plans threaten to demolish their road and tear apart their community. Polly's Parlour cafe is the centre for action, 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 parents gone and a disabled twin brother to care for, she has all but given up on having a family of her own. But can Frank provide the care the twins need? And is Polly strong enough to keep their community together?
