Publisher's Summary

When Lily Elliott's father dies she loses everything - not just a beloved protector and his wonderful ship the Lily-Jane, but also the way of life she has always known. As her mother sinks into a dream-world and the money which had always seemed sufficient turns out to have been mostly debts, Lily watches, bewildered, as destitution comes ever closer for the Elliott women and their loyal housekeeper. Then two rescuers appear.
One is the most unlikely saviour: Liam O'Connor, a poor seaman who selflessly befriends the unhappy little girl. The other is Joshua Crowther, the wealthy owner of Oakwood Place, a grand country mansion where the desperate women finally find refuge.


What the Critics Say

"Among the dross that constitutes the Liverpool saga market for women, Howard's enjoyable 19th-century historical romance of crossed love shines out." (Daily Mail)
"Her thousands of fans recognise the artistry of a ture storyteller." (Lancashire Life)

Audrey Howard at her inimitable best! One of those books that when you reach the final chapter you read ever slower (or in the case of audio books keep skipping back a bit) to prolong the pleasure that a really good novel engenders 😊
