It's Sarah and her brother against the world...
When Sarah Jepson's mother Annie dies, Sarah is left with her little brother Tommy to care for. Alone in the world, the two of them must make a life for themselves in the wake of the terrible upbringing they have endured.
But when Tommy is struck down by illness, Sarah's new life collapses. Lost in grief, she turns to the handsome Roger to save her - only to find that he is not who he seems...
Waiting in the wings is George - kind, but brutally scarred, Sarah's never seen him as anything more than a friend. But could all that be about to change?
The Sunday Times bestseller is back in a heartbreaking, moving tale of triumph against all the odds.

Kitty Neale was raised in South London and this working class area became the inspiration for her novels. In the 1980s she moved to Surrey with her husband and two children, but in 1998 there was a catalyst in her life when her son died, aged just 27. After joining other bereaved parents in a support group, Kitty was inspired to take up writing and her books have been Sunday Times bestsellers. Kitty now lives in Spain with her husband.
