An effortless and warmhearted read, focusing on the drama surrounding a family and their friends. If you are a fan of Kitty Neale, then this sequel to Lost and Found will suit you down to the ground. Set in 1965, Mavis and her two children are living with her Mum in Peckham, she has fallen in love but is finding it difficult to fully immerse herself in her new relationship. Kitty Neale keeps the pace up and the story just zips along, full of strong women (even if they don't know it themselves). This is a simply told tale, of interconnecting lives, it is easy to take a step back in time, and watch as the drama unfolds. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

A Family Scandal by Kitty Neale

You can never leave a bad man behind...Mavis Pugh has had a hard life. Despised and abused throughout her teenage years, she turned to the first man who showed her kindness. But her new husband, Alec, quickly revealed himself to be a violent bully. When Mavis escapes from Alec, she thinks the worst is behind her. Moving to a large family house with her two children is more than she ever dreamed of, and when handsome sign-writer Tommy takes an interest in her, she can't believe her luck. But Alec is far from a distant memory and, unbeknown to Mavis, he's watching her and her happy family closely. Just waiting for the right time to make his next - and final - move...

About the Author

Kitty Neale

Kitty Neale was raised in South London and this working-class area became the inspiration for her novels. In the 1980s she moved to Surrey with her husband and two children, but in 1998 there was a catalyst in her life when her son died, aged just 27. After working for 2 years with other bereaved parents in a support group, Kitty took up writing as a form of catharsis, and now lives in Spain with her husband. Lost Angel was a Sunday Times bestseller.
