Product Description

A gritty tale of family and a love that holds no bounds, from the best-selling author of Nobody’s Girl and A Father’s Revenge

Celia Frost has always thought herself a cut above the other residents of Lark Rise in Battersea. When her beloved son, Thomas, starts seeing Amy Miller, a girl from the bottom of the Rise, Celia disapproves, thinking her common.

When Celia's husband leaves her and Thomas announces he is to marry Amy, she is more determined than ever to split them up.Celia needs an ally, so she writes to her elder son, Jeremy, asking him to come home.

Jeremy’s arrival unleashes a tide of jealously and hate. He wants everything that belongs to Thomas – especially Amy. As Jeremy’s dangerous obsession for his brother’s wife grows, Amy must fight for her marriage, and her baby.

The heartbreaking new novel from the bestselling author of A Father’s Revenge and Nobody’s Girl.

About the Author

Kitty Neale was raised in South London and this working class area became the inspiration for her novels. In the 1980s she moved to Surrey with her husband and two children, but in 1998 there was a catalyst in her life when her son died, aged just 27.

After working for 2 years with other bereaved parents in a support group, Kitty took up writing as a form of catharsis, and now lives in Spain with her husband.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good one time read 27 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was my first on the Kindle and I enjoyed it.
The writing style was nice and easy to follow - no over complicated sentences or mass describing of one object.
The plot was well thought out, reminded me a little of Martina Cole but not as gritty, and there was a good twist.
My first read by this author but I'd try another.

The story and its content could have been so much better but I feel not enough depth to it. Im afraid not a satisfying read.

2.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing 2 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I read the blurb and thought it sounded an ineresting read. To cut down to the chase, the plot was the best thing about it. The writing style is far too simple and it doesn't engage as well as I had hoped.

However, if you are searching for something to flick through, this will suit. If you are something gripping with engaging characters, do not get this.

1.0 out of 5 stars don't bother 2 Aug 2013
By shopper
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book to the end but it is badly written, predictable and has a terrible ending. Rape is treated like something women should accept and normal and i found that deeply disturbing for a book written in this era. I would not recommend as a worthwhile read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Gave up half way through 6 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was realy looking forward to this but was so dissapointed with it,the characters had no depth at all and there were so many gossipy neighbours i couldnt work out who was who most of the time,The storyline was pretty thin and padded out terribly,the death of the neighbour and the mother fainting and going the doctors seemed to be irrellivent to the story,athough it may have been significant later on in the book frankly i dont really care.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cliched! 17 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm sorry but I really didn't enjoy this book as the characters were cardboard & I couldn't empathise with any of them - however I did read through to the end as I hate to give up on a book.The "disappearance" of 2 of the characters was the only good storyline & there was a surprise twist when find out where they'd been so not all bad.Sorry - maybe just not my style of writing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why did I bother? 2 Mar 2013
By Trig
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you like Catherine Cookson you will enjoy this book. I didn't find the story or the characters credible and although I read it to the end I wonder why I bothered when there are so many good books out there waiting to be read.
