Despite their privileged background, the twins have a devastating secret about the identity of their father. Their lives are to change drastically and they will face many difficult sacrifices and heart-breaking decisions on their path to true happiness.


This saga is, like all of Audrey Howard's books, compelling and memorable...a joy to read * The Historical Novels Review (A Place Called Hope) * Poignant and well plotted, this is the book to curl up with to shut out troubles. * Woman's Realm on BEYOND THE SHINING WATER * Among the dross that constitutes the Liverpool saga market for women, Howard's enjoyable 19th-century historical romance of crossed love shines out. * Daily Mail * Her thousands of fans recognise the artistry of a true storyteller * Lancashire Life *
