Publisher's Summary

When Laura Page returns to the remote Holderness village of Welwick, it is to try and discover the mystery of her mother Susannah’s early life. Now a local property owner in Hull, Susannah never speaks of her childhood, when she was brought up with the terrible stigma of bastardy – of being nobody’s child.

Born into poverty, living in a tiny labourer’s cottage with her father, Susannah’s mother had caught the eye of the local landowner’s son. She was his one and only great love, but when she died giving birth to their daughter Susannah he could not acknowledge his child but had to watch her growing up in hardship.

As the years passed and Laura had begun to be curious about her mother’s past, would she ever be reunited with the father she had scarcely known?

Truly nobody's child

I won't spoil this for anyone else by going into the storyline - suffice to say this book is well worth the effort. The narration is full of emotion and at times extremely heart wrenching.

Wonderful story

This story had many sides to it, through the generations, yet by the end you knew what had happened to everyone in the story, i dont like loose ends, fabulously written and narrated.
