When a naÃ¯ve encounter at a Coronation party leaves sixteen-year-old Janet Slater pregnant, there's no question in her scandalized parents' mind of her keeping the baby. Bundled off to a home for unmarried mothers in South London, Janet is about to face the hardest moment of her sheltered life, alone. Forced to give her tiny daughter up for adoption, Janet promises her that one day, come what may, she'll find her...
In the years that follow, Janet builds her life around her secret, and her lost daughter is never far from her thoughts. One day, her searching pays off, and the road to their longed-for reunion seems clear. But then a new shadow falls across the fragile happiness of both their lives.
"Nadia May excels in just this type of light romantic story, and brings all her skills to the fore....Her strong and not always nice women take on clear lives and personalities even beyond the text."-AudioFile
