Publisher's Summary

War rages, but the women and children of Liverpool's Dr Barnado's Home cannot give up hope.

Liverpool, 1941.

Troubled by a dark family history and the pain of seeing her country torn apart by war, young June Lavender finds new hope when she takes a job at the Dr Barnardo's children's home. There she meets Lizzie McRae, a little girl who is the spitting image of June's sister, who died tragically years before. Against the matron's wishes, the two girls form an unexpected bond as June tries to get the traumatised orphan to speak.

Meanwhile, June crosses path with Flight Lieutenant Murray Andrews, and the attraction is instant. But how can either of them think of love when war is ripping the world apart?

A gripping story of love, friendship and hope in the darkest of places. Molly Green is an exciting new voice in saga fiction, perfect for fans of Nadine Dorries and Katie Flynn.
