    I loved this book and was sad to leave the characters behind when it came to an end We follow the childhood of Patty who was abandoned as a baby and who subsequently spent her young life in an orphanage You get a good insight into the grim orphanage life in Liverpool in the early 1900s Patty has a dream of becoming a nurse which she eventually fulfills but her early upbringing and what happens to her close friend shapes her adult life and her attitude to men This is Katie Flynn at her best and I would highly recommend it.

    This was a nice read, but I found it did jump a little from one chapter to the next which made me go back to make sure I had not missed anything out., characters were good, but again I feel that the ending could have been better, or maybe a follow up to find out what transpire s with the baby and Maggie.

    I chose this book because I ve read several of Katie Flynns books however I found this one very disappointing in the beginning When Patty went looking to trace her background how coincidental that the first house she tried knew of her being left there in a Bush likewise the boy she spoke to knew as well now that s than a coincidence felt the first part of the book was very amateurish however it did improve as it went along.

    I enjoyed this book very much A slight love twist made for excitement Also a different kind of hardship faced as a child in care gave it a sadness that could never be understood by those who have had a loving normal childhood.

    More of less guessed what was bound to happen early on into the book BUTit was a pleasant read and quite descriptive of the times.I read with interest and in huge sessions but it was easy to put down and resume at another time.

    Enjoyed this book very much until it went into memory mode, not a fan of this , might be an age thing Only reason for four stars.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this story set predominantly between the two world wars, exploring the poverty of Liverpool, the plight of orphaned children and the role of the community midwife Very well written, as I ve come to expect from this author.
