Her mother’s secret of the title is one of parentage, of course, only poor Lettie, brought up by her gran, is never given any facts. When she hits 19 she begins to make enquiries but all to no avail. Her mother died at the girl’s birth, the father is unknown – that is that. Of course it all comes out but not until she loses her gran which is all very sad.

Synopsis

Her Mother's Secret by Catherine King

Desire Lettie Hargreaves wants more than her simple, uncomplicated life with her grandmother can provide. She longs for excitement and love and she's determined to make something of herself. Deceit There is something about Lettie's mother that Ivy has kept hidden from her granddaughter, something that would shatter her world. So when Lettie suggests going into service for the ailing Lady Laughton, Ivy knows she must do something to stop it. Determination Feeling stifled and confused, Lettie chooses a different path that offers her the chance at love and of the life she so craves. But she is still the same strong-minded young woman and her ambition may do more harm than good as she is entirely unaware of the secrets her actions will uncover.
