Synopsis

A Mother's Duty by June Francis

Torn between her family and a last chance at love...Raising three boys and running the Arcadia Hotel almost single handed are enough to keep widow Kitty Ryan busy. She has no time for romance - unless it's in the form of a rare evening out at the local picture house in the company of Mr Fred Astair. Then along comes John Mcleod, bringing with him a second chance at happiness. However, as Hitler grows too big for his boots and 'Peace in our time' becomes an empty refrain, Kitty finds her sons unwilling to accept another man into their household. Unless she can reunite her menfolk, the future looks set to be that of a family in conflict, in a world on the eve of war...(Note: Originally published as Kitty and Her Boys.)

About the Author

June Francis was brought up in the port of Liverpool, UK, and so although she started her novel writing career by writing medieval romances, it seemed natural to also write family sagas set in her home city due to its fascinating historical background, especially as she has several mariners in her family tree and her mother was in service. She has written twenty sagas set on Merseyside,as well as in the beautiful city of Chester and Lancashire countryside. She has also written historical romances. She really enjoy writing two different genres because it's not only fun but she learns so much from the research. To date one of her most pleasurable moments to do with her writing career is that an excerpt from her saga, 'Look For The Silver Lining', is to be used in a display in Liverpool's new museum down by the Albert Dock.
