1950s Liverpool. In the tight-knit Irish Catholic community of the Four Streets, two girls are growing up.

One is motherless - and hated by the cold woman who is determined to take her dead mother's place.

The other is hiding a dreadful secret which she dare not let slip to anyone, lest it rips the heart out of the community.

What can the people of the Four Streets do when a betrayal at the very heart of their world comes to light?

Review by

What a powerful book. I can't wait to read the next two books in the trilogy. Dorries has created characters whom you can see with your mind's eye and whose tears are your tears. In this small area of Liverpool, a predominantly Irish Catholic populace makes do with little or no money. However, they are happy in all senses and when ill luck befalls one of them they all feel it. Anything else I say will spoil it for you so let me just say that it's a must read.
