Publisher's Summary

With six children and a husband who earned what he could as a manual labourer, it was a constant struggle for Molly O'Connor to keep her family fed and raised to be respectable.

One by one, her children left Kibally, but Breda, the youngest, stayed close to her parents. Then tragedy struck the O'Connors. Reeling from unhappiness and humiliation, Breda decided to make a new life for herself - in Yorkshire with her Aunt Josie's family. There she was to discover a totally different world, with new people and new challenges.

    "Warms the cockles of yer heart"

    I loved the plucky heroine, the bright one, and loved losing myself in the lilt of the narrator's accent. This is better than your average beach read...
