A warm and uplifting saga about female friendship set in the heart of pre-WWI London, from the author of The Abandoned Daughter and The Brave Daughters. Life for Elsie is difficult as she struggles to cope with her alcoholic mother. Caring for her siblings and working long hours at Swift's Jam factory in London's Bermondsey is exhausting. Thankfully her lifelong friendship with Dot helps to smooth over life's rough edges. When Elsie and Dot meet Millie Swift, they are nervous to be in the presence of the bosses' daughter. Over time, they are surprised to feel so drawn to her, but should two East End girls be socializing in such circles? When disaster strikes, it binds the women in ways they could never imagine. Long-held secrets are revealed that could change all their lives.

Born the thirteenth child of fifteen to a middle-class mother and an East End barrow boy, Mary Wood's family was poor, but rich in love. Mary raised four children and has numerous grandchildren, step-grandchildren and great-grandchildren. An avid reader, she first put pen to paper in 1989 and is now a full-time novelist. She is the bestselling author of numerous books, including To Catch a Dream, Street Orphans, The Abandoned Daughter, and The Brave Daughters.
