A mother's hope for the Cornish Girls

Walker, Betty (Novelist)2023
Large Print
St Ives, Spring 1943. After having given up her baby at 17, Sonia is inspired by her work at the orphanage to discover what happened to her daughter 25 years ago. Reunited, they struggle to bond whilst braving the war together. Nurse Lily has returned to St Ives to finish training as a midwife. But when old flame Tristan is brought in wounded, she realises she must put the past in the past to care for him, and perhaps then she'll realise her own dreams of motherhood. And working at Tristan's convalescent home, Mary longs for the romance she reads of in her novels. But her cold and disapproving mother is making that hard for Mary at every turn. In times of war, the Cornish Girls can rely on one another to make it through. But can they lean on the bonds of motherhood for support too?
