If you love Dilly Court, you'll love Rosie Goodwin. ALL SHE WANTS IS SOMEONE TO CALL HER OWN 1884, Nuneaton. Fourteen-year-old Sunday Small has never lived outside the Nuneaton workhouse. The regime is cruel, and if it weren't for Miss Beau - who comes in every week to teach the children their letters - and her young friend Daisy, Sunday's life wouldn't be worth living. And now she's attracted the unwelcome attention of the workhouse master. With no choice but to leave behind everything she knows, Sunday strikes out on her own to make her fortune and to fulfil her promise to come back for Daisy. And, secretly she dreams of finding the long-lost mother who gave her away. But she's about to discover that, try as she might to escape, the brutal world of the workhouse will not let her go without a fight . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
A vibrant page-turner with entrancing characters * Margaret Dickinson *
Rosie writes such heart-warming sagas featuring believable characters and well-researched backgrounds and eras and I'm looking forward to reading The Little Angel and all the sagas in her Days of the Week series. Such a clever idea. * Lyn Andrews *
The hardships and privations of a Victorian workhouse are vividly portrayed. Sunday Small is a wonderful heroine, plucky, determined and warm-hearted. A believable and compelling read all the way to a satisfying conclusion * Jennie Felton *
10 books you need to read in March - Rosie Goodwin, who's been hailed as the new Catherine Cookson, is the author of over 20 bestselling novels. This March, she returns with a moving, heart-warming new saga set in 1884...Mothering Sunday is an incredibly consuming, uplifting read that will have you rooting for its kind-hearted, good-natured characters within the first couple of pages. Sunday's life-affirming energy and kindness breathe life and joy into the story, making her splendid company for when you're feeling down in the dumps * Readers' Digest *
Be prepared to shed tears as much-loved author Rosie Goodwin works her storytelling magic in a heart-rending saga packed with her trademark warmth and wisdom...This new drama-packed story is a delight, a true emotional rollercoaster...Deprivation, cruelty, hatred, discovery and love all play a part in Goodwin's powerful and moving story which grips from the chilling opening to the tear-jerking finale. A dark but beautiful story . . . -- Pam Norfolk * Lancashire Evening Post *
