Product Description

Product Description

It is the 1930s and having survived the Great Depression the Neill family must now face up to the hardships of war. The legacy Ann Neill has inherited from her kindly employer has been a godsend but just as their lives seem set to improve, the threat of war with Germany looms and they seem headed for a similarly dark horizon. Full of dark family secrets, Towards A Dark Horizon tells the next part of the story of Ann and Lilly Neill, their father Johnny as well as the Ryan clan and the budding relationship between Danny and Maddie. But in the turbulent years before and after the start of the Second World War, no one can escape the conflict or what fate has in store. In Towards A Dark Horizon, Maureen Reynolds continues her compelling story describing the trials and tribulations of working-class life in the close-knit community of pre-war and wartime Dundee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly amazing 21 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the second book in the series and I can not wait to read the third.
I love little Lily and her excitement with simplistic events in her life.
The book is a real page turner and pulls you right into the story line, it makes me feel like part of Ann's family bringing tears to my eyes especially when Danny is called to war.
I would recommend this book to all my friends and family and I'm looking forward to reading the next book to find out what lies ahead for the future of Ann ,Danny , Maddie and Lily.
This book is truly an amazing read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark horizons 12 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You do get caught up inside a family saga after reading this book. The families feel real although Anne does seem a little too good to be true at times. All the flitting between relatives and friends, does she ever get the time to have her own life.

Looking forwards to reading the last book in this technology.
