A Liverpool Lass




A novel of family, love and betrayal from the Sunday Times bestselling saga author

Liverpool. December, 1905. In the breaking dawn of a raw windswept morning, a new-born baby girl is left at the door of an orphange. So helpless and appealing is the foundling that young Nellie McDowell, the maid-of-all-work, decides there and then to adopt her as her own sister.

In the years that follow, Nellie and Lilac become even closer than sisters in their shared struggle to survive the grinding poverty of their lot. But they cannot lean on each other for ever. Nellie delights in the promise of love - and tastes the bitterness of betrayal - just as the long finger of war stretches out to divide the girls and rob Liverpool of a whole generation of its young men ...

Sure to please fans and newcomers alike, this is classic Katie Flynn saga writing at its best.

She decided to write her Liverpool series after hearing the reminiscences of family members about life in the city in the early years of the twentieth century. She also wrote as Judith Saxton. For the last few years of her life, she had to cope with ME but continued to write with the help of her daughter, Holly Flynn. Sadly, Katie passed away on 1 January 2019, but had already begun working with Holly on upcoming books, which will be published in 2019 and beyond.
