A Daughter’s Shame




A sweeping family saga perfect for readers of Maggie Hope and Val Wood

‘But you haven’t got a dad. Never did have one.’

Neither can she understand the tensions and ties between her mother and the members of two Macclesfield families, the Hammonds and the Chancellors. But when she falls for a man she shouldn’t and finds herself in trouble, many family secrets start to unravel…
