Publisher's Summary

England is at war, but nothing can ruin Esther Wynford's happiness at marrying Monty Grant. Their short honeymoon results in a baby, but on the birth of her daughter, Joy, Esther's world falls apart. Esther's dying mother confesses to a dark secret: Esther is not her natural daughter but the result of an exchange of babies after her own child was stillborn.

Esther's real mother was being forced to give up her baby to an orphanage, and Joy's birth makes the reason clear. Harshly rejected by Monty, she takes her precious baby and leaves everything and everyone she's ever known, determined to fend for herself and her child. But her fight is just beginning....

Loved it!

If you fancy an occasional feel-good-whilst-learning-a-bit type of story, this is perfect. Great narrator, and the story moved at good pace.

conclusion effectively sums up title

The story tackles the issue of racial prejudice in an unexpected but meaningful way, and the ending effectively sums up the title.

Great story, beautifully read

I loved the readers accents, done so subtly one didn’t at first even notice how good they were. And a good story too - made one think.
