A gripping saga, richly evocative of the period, featuring the gutsy and determined Maggie, who struggles to deal with her lot in life...As the only child of loving, affluent parents, Maggie Wheaton's life is near perfect. Well brought up in the close-knit village of Melton in Cambridgeshire, she had grown into a beautiful young woman who is confident, bright and popular. But in 1962, days after her sixteenth birthday her idyllic life is shattered when a disastrous car accident kills both her parents. Already engulfed in grief Maggie then suffers the ultimate betrayal when she learns a life-changing family secret. Maggie has no choice but to go and live with her appointed guardian, Ruby Riordan and her family in the seaside town of Southend. Struggling with the loss of her parents she sets out on a deliberate path of self-destruction and goes increasingly off the rails. She pushes Ruby to the brink and when she finally snaps, Maggie runs away to London to seek fame and fortune as a singer. But life in the city is not what Maggie thought it would be and she quickly finds herself caught up in a seedy and dangerous world of deception. Can she extract herself from the situation or will she have to depend on Ruby and Johnnie to find her in time? A hard-hitting and heartbreaking new novel from the author who bought you Ruby and Gracie. Perfect for fans of Katie Flynn and Dilly Court.
