The Other Side of Happiness : A perfect love. A cherished daughter. A dark secret. Paperback / softback


For typist Sadie Bell, the 1960s promise a decade of mini-skirts, pop music and endless possibilities.

Young and carefree, she lives happily with her parents and older brothers in Hammersmith. When Sadie meets Paul Winston at a Cliff Richard concert, it marks the beginning of a new chapter in her life.

Falling head over heels in love, the couple can't wait to be married and move in to Paul's parents' home in a beautiful Surrey village until they can afford a place of their own.

Despite the disapproval of her mother-in-law, Sadie is deeply happy with her new husband.

But Paul and Sadie's joy is tragically short-lived and Sadie returns to London alone and pregnant. Although heartbroken, Sadie finds support in her family and close friend Brenda, and a new sense of purpose with the birth of her baby girl, Rosie.

But life has more surprises in store for Sadie, and a terrible secret threatens to take everything away from her once more...
