Wives and Daughters, Paperback


Set in the watchful society of Hollingford, this is a warm tale of love and longing.

Molly Gibson is the spirited, loyal daughter of the local doctor.

Their peaceful close-knit home is turned upside down when Molly's father decides to remarry.

Whilst Molly struggles to adjust to her snobbish stepmother, she forms a close relationship with her glamorous new stepsister Cynthia.

The strength of this friendship is soon tested as their lives become entwined with Squire Hamley and his two sons.
