Synopsis

Secrets of Our Hearts by Sheelagh Kelly

Niall may be poor but he is a good man. He does his best for his wife and their five children, in difficult circumstances in their small, cramped house in the back streets of York. But this loving home is torn apart when his wife dies in a tragic accident and Niall finds himself alone with only his mother-in-law and sisters-in-law for company. His five children run him ragged and, seeking solace, he finds refuge at the Angel pub.

Here he catches sight of Boudicea, the Angel's beautiful and bubbly barmaid. With his wife only gone a few months, he must supress his feelings of passion, yet he finds he’s unable to tear himself away from her warm charm and alluring looks.

But Niall's mother-in-law, the aptly named Mrs Beasty, is determined to do all she can to keep Niall from finding happiness again. And when she discovers that Boudicea's past is far from perfect, she conspires to bring about her downfall…
