Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A rags-to-riches tale of workhouse Jane marrying her boss. It’s a lovely read full of joy and then Jane’s brother turns up. He escaped the workhouse aged 14 and turned to crime. Seeing how well Jane has done for herself gives him the idea of using her position for his criminal ways. Things go very wrong and the consequences are pretty devastating for all. So what began as a light, happy tale suddenly takes a dramatic turn. It is very good.

If you like Lyn Andrews you might also like to read books by Maggie Ford, Anne Baker and Katie Flynn.

Synopsis

From Liverpool with Love by Lyn Andrews

In 1920s Liverpool, Jane, her little brother Alfie and their mother Ellen have faced the horrors of the workhouse together. But when Ellen dies, two very different paths open up for the siblings. Jane is sent to work in the Empire Laundry and builds a new life for herself with the neighbours who take her in. She finds solace there and the promise of a happy future when she falls for Joe, their eldest son. But Alfie absconds from the workhouse and embarks on a life of crime. When their paths cross once more, Alfie turns on his sister. His plans will jeopardise every happiness she hoped for...
