Another Man's Child by Anne Bennett

Celia elopes with Andy and they make their way by ship to England. While on board, Celia meets a demure young woman called Annabel who tells her in confidence that a friend of her father forced himself upon her and she has since fallen pregnant. Annabel plans to throw herself on her brother's mercy and asks Celia if she will accompany her to Birmingham as her ladies maid. Without a job and with nothing to offer her, Andy encourages Celia to accept - he can find employment for himself and save for their future. But neither of them can foresee the events that will follow, and soon Celia will be forced to choose between the man she loves, and the love of a vulnerable child...

She considers herself to be an Irish Brummie and feels therefore that she has a foot in both cultures. She has four children and four grandchildren.

An accident put paid to her teaching career and, after moving to North Wales, Anne turned to the other great love of her life and began to write seriously.
