Description

London, 1960. Patsy Lamb is turning seventeen at the start of a decade that will change everything. The slums of the East End are making way for the new modern lifestyle that is being promised to Patsy's generation. But as Patsy looks to the future, her world is rocked by a secret from her past. It changes everything she thought she knew about her family. As Patsy struggles for answers, she turns to her grandmother. Molly, after all, has always been there for her. But Molly has problems of her own. Desperate to escape her abusive husband, Molly wonders if she's got the energy to fight any longer. These two women, generations apart, must both search their hearts for the strength to overcome their problems. And as Molly discovers that you're never too old to follow your dreams, Patsy must learn whether in the end, love is all you need. With grit and passion, Sally Worboyes' heartfelt and honest writing leads you right into the vibrant heart of East End London.show more
