A moving and emotional final novel from bestselling author Ruth Hamilton.
In Ruth Hamilton's For the Love of Liverpool, Kate Owen is a woman fleeing from the past. Leaving a rewarding job in London, she's uprooted her life and given away her daughter to keep them both safe. Damaged from a traumatic event that broke her family apart, she attempts to find peace in the city she now calls home: Liverpool. It's there she meets the seemingly eligible Alex Price, who offers her a glimpse of a happy future she thought could never exist.
But there are those in London who can never forget what she did and, worse, believe she holds the key to the unfinished business she left behind in the capital. They intend to track her down by whatever means necessary and until they're gone she will never find peace and be reunited with her daughter.
Growing closer to Alex, the layers of their lives are peeled away and Kate realizes he is also hurting from painful memories and might well be as damaged as her. Will they ever find happiness together in Liverpool? Or will the past forever haunt them?
