LoveReading View on Mothering Sunday

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

Mothering Sunday Synopsis

ALL SHE WANTS IS SOMEONE TO CALL HER OWN 1884, Nuneaton. Fourteen-year-old Sunday Small has never lived outside the Nuneaton workhouse. The regime is cruel, and if it weren't for Miss Beau - who comes in every week to teach the children their letters - and her young friend Daisy, Sunday's life wouldn't be worth living. And now she's attracted the unwelcome attention of the workhouse master. With no choice but to leave behind everything she knows, Sunday strikes out on her own to make her fortune and to fulfil her promise to come back for Daisy. And, secretly she dreams of finding the long-lost mother who gave her away. But she's about to discover that, try as she might to escape, the brutal world of the workhouse will not let her go without a fight ...
