Product Description

Product Description


Set in 1950s Ireland, twenty-year-old Sarah Nolan leaves her Dublin home after a series of arguments. She's taken a job in Cork City with The Gazette, a move her parents strongly oppose. With her limited budget, she is forced to take unsavory accommodations where the landlord can't be trusted. Soon after she settles in, Sarah befriends sixteen-year-old Lucy who has been left abandoned and pregnant.

Dan Maddan is a charming and flirtatious journalist who wins Sarah's heart. He promises to end his engagement with Ruth, but can Sarah trust him to keep his word?

It's when her employer asks to see her birth certificate that Sarah discovers some long-hidden secrets. Her parents' behaviour continue to baffle her and her problems with Dan and Lucy multiply.

Will Dan stand by Sarah in her time of need? Will Sarah be able to help Lucy keep her baby? Or will the secrets destroy Sarah and everything she dreams of for her future?

I'm Cathy Mansell. I write romantic suspense. My stories are set in
Ireland, England and America. I enjoy plotting and creating characters.
I can't imagine my life without writing and I'm lucky to have a lovely
husband who allows me time to do what I love.

My two books, Shadow Across the Liffey and Her Father's Daughter, have gone from e-books to library large print and paperback in the space of one year.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gripping Story 9 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A compelling tale told with many delightfully descriptive and evocative passages. This pacey story is about the romance of an

endearing young woman as she begins her career having moved from Dublin to Cork against her parents wishes. Woven around the fast

moving world of newspapers and the mysteries of the Magdalene nuns who helped 'fallen women' this book is another unput-downable

satisfying read from Cathy Mansell.

I enjoyed Shadow across the Liffey so much that I just had to read Her Father's Daughter. Cathy has a wonderful way of making you feel that you're actually in there with the characters experiencing their emotions. Once I had started reading I couldn't stop until I got to the end. Thank you Cathy, I can't wait for the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waiting for number three 16 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I have really enjoyed Shadow Across the Liffey and Her Father's Daughter did not disappoint. It is deceptively easy to read (I always think that shows that the author has worked hard at her craft) and the plot carries it forward. I knew very little of Irish life in the Fifties but after finishing His Father's Daughter I understood the dilemma faced by women in those far off times - be they married, single or (horrors) single and pregnant. A great cast of characters and a moving story. It ticks all the right boxes if you want a book for a quiet, absorbing read. I hope it isn't too long before the next Cathy Mansell appears.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read, but gripping 18 Oct 2013
By RosieT
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was the second book I've read of Cathy Mansell's, and it certainly lived up to the first. Cathy has a very simple style, which makes her books easy to read, and real page-turners. She creates very believable characters and very real situations. Set in the late 1950s, I can imagine that this will provoke a lot of nostalgia for people who were born in the 30s/40s. A really entertaining story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cathy does it again! 30 July 2013
By Stephen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another superb story from Cathy Mansell. If you enjoyed her first book, Shadow Across the Liffey, you will love this new tale of intrigue, hidden truths and the outcome of one woman's journey to uncover her past so that she can secure her future happiness.

Yet again you are drawn into the lives of the characters and the page turning nature of the story.

Set once more in the Ireland of the recent past, this time the 1950s, you will be transported back to a more innocent time, but a time when heartache could lurk beneath a families happiness.

Proving that she has many more stories to tell, I cannot recommend Cathy's new book highly enough.

Oh yes, and note the title! Never have I read a book with such an apt one!
