Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Another lovely, warm read from Katie Flynn, a bit predictable but hey … so it should be. A couple of motherless Liverpool kids are left in the care of a neighbour when father goes back to sea. Her violent son attacks and hurts the kids so finally a teacher steps in and takes them to Wales to attempt to find their mother’s family. What they eventually find there is really heartwarming.

Synopsis

A Family Christmas by Katie Flynn

From the Sunday Times bestselling author of A Christmas to Remember. Two children go on a desperate journey to find their family Jimmy Trewin and his little sister are devastated by their mother's death and horrified to find themselves entrusted to the far from tender care of a hated neighbour, Mrs Huxtable. They hope their father will rescue them when his ship comes into port but this does not happen and when Cyril Huxtable is seen by the children hiding a wad of notes away, a wad which subsequently disappears, they realise they are in deep trouble. Cyril accuses them of theft and threatens a terrible revenge so they decide to leave Liverpool and try to find their mother's family in Wales. Soon, they meet Miiss Trent, a school teacher who has been unfairly dismissed, and agree to join forces since Miss Trent also hopes to find relatives in Wales. But Cyril has promised to pursue them until they hand over his property, and soon they realise he has picked up their trail...
