'In the world of historical saga writers, there's a brand new voice' My Weekly

From the author of Belle of the Back Streets, a dramatically powerful saga of secrets, friendship, motherhood, love and betrayal.


If you love Dilly Court and Rosie Goodwin, you'll LOVE Glenda Young!


'What a gripping writer, pure passion for her world on every page' 5* reader review


'You are totally transplanted into the life or our heroine. Wonderful characters and evocative descriptions' 5* reader review

'Unique, captivating... will definitely pull at everyone's heartstrings' 5* reader review


'She's not worth more than tuppence, that child!'

Those are the words that haunt Sadie Linthorpe. She is the talk of Ryhope when she arrives there, aged seventeen, alone, seeking work and a home in the pit village. But Sadie is keeping a secret - she is searching for her baby girl who was taken from her at birth a year ago and cruelly sold by the child's grandmother.

All that Sadie knows about the family who took her daughter is that they live in Ryhope. And the only thing she knows about her daughter is that when the baby was born, she had a birthmark on one shoulder that resembled a tiny ladybird. But as Sadie's quest begins, a visitor from her past appears - one who could jeopardise the life she's beginning to build and ruin her chances of finding her beloved child for ever...

Praise for Glenda Young:

'I really enjoyed Glenda's novel. It's well researched and well written and I found myself caring about her characters' Rosie Goodwin


'Will resonate with saga readers everywhere...a wonderful, uplifting story' Nancy Revell


'All the ingredients for a perfect saga and I loved Meg; she's such a strong and believable character. A fantastic debut' Emma Hornby


'Glenda has an exceptionally keen eye for domestic detail which brings this local community to vivid, colourful life and Meg is a likeable, loving heroine for whom the reader roots from start to finish' Jenny Holmes


'I found it difficult to believe that this was a debut novel, as "brilliant" was the word in my mind when I reached the end. I enjoyed it enormously, being totally absorbed from the first page. I found it extremely well written, and having always loved sagas, one of the best I've read' Margaret Kaine


Look out for Glenda's other compelling sagas, Belle of the Back Streets, Pearl of Pit Lane and The Girl with the Scarlet Ribbon.
