Maureen Lee's stories are all set in Liverpool. The stories are very different but they all have the warmth and charm that readers have come to expect from this wonderful, natural storyteller. THE GIRL FROM BAREFOOT HOUSE For Josie Flynn, life with her beautiful, wayward mother in the heart of Liverpool was all she ever wanted - until Hitler's bombs ripped her childhood apart. But The War was just the start of a journey which brings her friendship and heartbreak. LACEYS OF LIVERPOOL Alice Lacey couldn't be more different from her sister-in-law, the bitter, ambitious Cora. And, when both women give birth to sons on one chaotic night in Liverpool in 1940, Cora's jealousy and resentment promptS her into an action with the most far-reaching consequences. THE HOUSE BY PRINCES PARK Ruby O'Hagan never knew her parents. Brought up in a convent, at fourteen Ruby is chosen to be a lady's companion but before long she finds herself in the slums of Liverpool, alone and with two children to support.
