Saturday's Child, Paperback


It was 1950. Magsy O'Gara, her husband killed in the war, plodded through her daily routine as a hospital cleaner, dedicating all her spare time to Beth, her genius daughter.

Pursued by men who admired her great beauty, she was determined to remain a widow.

Nothing was to divert her from her gruelling schedule.

Her goal was simple: Beth would become a doctor. Beth, however, wanted a normal life -- a brother, a sister, a stepfather who might make her wonderful mother happy.

So Beth was delighted when a personable man began to court Magsy.

Across, the road at number 1, Nellie Hulme, trapped in a world of silence, watched the other two Saturday girls.

Deaf since infancy, Nellie had a secret so huge that it amused her.

What would folk have thought had they known her true position in life? And why did she 'hear' in her dreams?
