Publisher's Summary

From a tender age, little Evie struggled....

Evie spent her early years left outside on the step. With a drunk for a father and a neglectful mother, all little Evie has ever craved is a safe home and a normal existence.

Her young eyes had seen so much, but this never tainted her spirit. If it wasn't for her best friend, Gary, and a friendly dog called Whisky, Evie might never have made it to her 16th birthday.

At 16 she meets Ken, a sweet brown-eyed boy not much older than she is. Perhaps her fortunes have changed. But as soon as she gives over her heart, she is betrayed, not for the first time in her young life....

Will Evie ever find the love and warmth she's always craved?

Absolutely beautiful and tearful story

I cried my eyes out not only reading but listening to this story. I just wanted to hug the main character Evie. She went through some much turmoil and in the end she truely discovers about what family actually is and what it actually means to have love of a family.

A beautiful story many would relate to

Childhood memories. Birmingham in the 60's. Children playing in the streets. Childhood friendahips. All this and more in this lovely story of Evie & her family she so desperately wanted to be accepted by. Do you often wonder what happened to the kids you grew up with? Can you picture the streets you all played in? The kid fights that went on? Have you gone back to visit & found it just as you remembered? This story will capture your heart as well as your memories as you 'will' Evie on as she battles with what life throws at her
. Beautifully read & narrator even has the Brummie accent down pat! 👍
