The Lost Child, Hardback Book

The Lost Child Hardback

Part of the The Deerness Series series



1877, Durham. After a traumatic and harrowing incident at the hands of a stranger, a woman gives birth to a child.

However, she is persuaded by her husband to give him up to a local couple. On the same dark and stormy night, a local pit owner turns his wife out onto the bleak moors, telling her son she is evil.

The woman is never seen again. 1895, Durham. Twenty years later, these seemingly unrelated events have shaped the characters of two unloved boys, who have now grown to be men.

They, in turn, are about to change the lives of two innocent young women as the past reaches out and casts a shadow over the present.
