Publisher's Summary

One woman's struggle against great odds, with a heart tragically divided.

Having spent her childhood with a cold, unfeeling stepmother, Lily Clair’s life is changed forever when she is sent as general maid to old friends of her family. Soon into the dull routine comes Joel, handsome son of a wealthy entrepreneur, and for Lily, young and vulnerable, their meeting is a revelation.

Riding high on the crest of her new-found happiness she cannot be prepared for the violent attack that comes in the night, or for its devastating, life-changing consequences. But live with the consequences she must as, with a heart torn, she deals with one hand of fate after another.

Building to an unforgettable climax set against a plague-ravaged rural England, Lily Clair’s story is one of love, passion, betrayal, tragedy, and longing. In her search for happiness, she is a woman you will never forget....

    "Such is life"

    Really enjoyed this book and the narrator was brilliant and really bought the book to life. Sad the series of events in this book but it more a case of consequences for earlier actions. There were happy moments but it is a book where the people are not worldly but young and inexperienced stumbling along and sadly life throws obstacles in their way. Not all books have happy endings and this is one of them but in my view time well spent and I certainly will look for more books by this author.

    "No light at the end of this particular tunnel"

    I bought this in spite of the reviewer warning of its depressing nature. I really wish I hadn't as even Patricia Gallimore's excellent narrative style can't detract from the endless misery. No light, hope or optimism anywhere, which is a great pity, as with even a chink of one of these, it would have been so much better. The audiobook should also have had the "CD 1, 2, 3 etc" edited out. If you have more patience and tolerance for endless woe, then "enjoy".

    "Depressing"

    This is one of THE most depressing books. Beautifully read - hence 2 stars - but be warned before you give up over 20 hours of your time. I like a good weepy but this is a life so miserable and introspective that you are almost postively relieved when it reaches its pretty inevitable end

    "POWERFUL LISTENING!"

    A fantastic read! Didn't want it to finish a very touching end to a brilliant narrative. Patricia Gillmore captures all the characters perfectly. The story portrays the era with great intensity.
