Noleen Delaney is one of an army of night cleaners at St Angelus hospital in Liverpool. Since her husband was injured in the war, she has supported her five children and the family; she just about gets by.
When Finn, her youngest, passes the 11-plus exam, Noleen feels faint. Allowing Finn to attend the grammar will stretch her purse too far. As the nurses of Lovely Lane near their final exams, Noleen will find herself tested and her heart broken. Just how far can a mother's love stretch?
"As heart-warming as it is heart-breaking, this novel is unputdownable." (Sunday Express)

the mothers who held their families together..
I loved how the author not only showed us the lives of the nurses of this brilliant series but we also get introduced to those mothers who went to work night after night, cleaning the hospital when everyone slept.
There was danger from those who fought against the law, but it took the bravery of a fourteen-year-old who stood up against the evil that tried to take over Liverpool through fear and so much more.
I would not like to describe a scene as I do not want to ruin the storyline for other readers but there is one near the end when ghosts from the past are finally laid to rest.
the whole book moved me as it was full of wonderful writing and excellent narration from the narrator Georgia Maguire.
simply a book which contained so many emotions and so much more simply highly recommended.
