`A gripping, mouth-watering twist-fuelled read from start to finish... A measure of all good books is simply, does the reader want to read on? And the answer here is, without a doubt, yes!' Carol Rivers, author of A Wartime Christmas
Manchester, 1920.

Worse, Carrie's sweetheart jilts her on the eve of their wedding, despite her pregnancy.Facing some tough choices and needing to provide a home for her baby and invalid mother, Carrie is forced to accept the unsettling advances of Ralph Armstrong. It is a decision she will regret.
