'Elizabeth Gill is a born storyteller' Trisha AshleyWhen hope is lost, can she rebuild her home?After her daughter Arabella passes away, leaving a poor, motherless child in her wake, Nell Almond doesn't think her life can get any worse.

But then tragedy strikes a second time and she finds herself widowed, with her husband's quarry to manage. But it's baby Frederick, her grandson, who troubles her most.

Being cared for by one of the local families, he lives in hand-me-down clothes in a cramped and unrefined home.

Nell desperately wants him to return to his rightful place, as heir to the quarry, but should she put all her hopes in one child?

From the bestselling author of Miss Appleby's Academy and Nobody's Child comes the next book in the beloved Weardale Sagas, continuing the story begun in The Guardian Angel.
