Child Of The Mersey

Author:

Annie Groves

Synopsis:

Kitty Callaghan has plenty on her plate. Since her mother died when she was just a child, she's cooked, cleaned and scraped to make ends meet for her drunken father and her headstrong brothers. Rita Kennedy, living with her husband under the roof of her spiteful mother-in-law, is desperate for their own home. Perhaps that will help them get their marriage back on track? For the two women, and others like them on Liverpool's dockside, the threatening clouds of war will bring heartache and tragedy. It will take courage, and ties of friendship and family to see them through the dark days of war.
