Publisher's summary

An utterly heartbreaking and uplifting historical saga novel

A totally heart-wrenching but ultimately uplifting historical novel from best-selling author Pam Howes about young women facing dark times together, with friendship and courage. Fans of Nadine Dorries, Diney Costeloe, and Nancy Revell will be captivated.

Mersey Square, Stockport, 1959. Jane Wilson’s parents met during the war in the North of England, but Jane is more interested in listening to the new rock music than hearing stories about the Blitz. When she meets handsome drummer Eddie Mellor, with his sparkling blue eyes and cool black leather jacket, she knows her life is about to start.

But Jane’s parents think Eddie’s rebellious ways will lead their beloved daughter into trouble. They forbid her from seeing Eddie, telling Jane to get a proper job as a nurse. But Jane cannot stand the idea of life without the boy she loves and secretly continues to see Eddie. The day she finds out that Eddie has betrayed her, she is utterly distraught. Were her parents right all along?

Jane is desperate to rebuild her life. Her friends rally round to support her, and she gets a job at the local music shop she loves, when to her shock, Eddie invites her to his family home and begs her to reconsider. Just as Jane is feeling tempted, someone pounds on the door of the house bringing shocking news that will change both of their lives forever....

Can Jane find happiness with Eddie? And if she does, will her family ever forgive her?

This book was previously published as That’ll Be the Day.
