In the late 1800s, left on the steps of a workhouse as a new born, named Sunday to mark the day and subjected to a hard and often cruel childhood, our heroine, as a teenager, catches the eye of the workhouse master. This enrages matron who has designs on the master herself. Jealousy is indeed an evil monster as Sunday will discover. Forced to flee she encounters tragedy and pain, little happiness but then, as this fast-paced, absorbing read should, light and love will shine through for her. It’s predictable and glorious fun, the perfect ingredients for a long, relaxing read and an obvious Mother’s Day gift. Fans of this genre will love it. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Mothering Sunday by Rosie Goodwin

It's 1884 and 14-year-old Sunday Small has been in the Nuneaton workhouse since she was abandoned at birth. The regime is cruel, and if it were not for the lovely Miss Beau who comes in every week to teach the inmate children their letters, and her dear little friend Daisy, Sunday's life would barely be worth living. And now she's attracted the unwelcome attention of the workhouse master, who will stop at nothing to get her alone and will not take no for an answer. It's time for Sunday to strike out alone in the world. Leaving behind everything she knows, she must try to make her fortune. She's driven on by the promise she made to come back for Daisy, and her secret dream of one day being reunited with the long-lost mother who gave her away. But she's about to discover that try to escape as she might, the brutal world of the workhouse will not let her go without a fight ...
