Untitled 2 (Paperback)

Awaiting publication


May 1953. England is finally starting to recover from World War Two. Shop shelves are filling, the young Princess Elizabeth is about to be crowned, and 22-year-old Isobel McIntyre is a young doctor-in-training at a London university.

Eight years after the men have returned from war, most women have been relegated to the home again. Isobel's finding it hard keeping her head down among the casual discrimination of her professors and other students, even without the secret she's keeping . . .

Because, one terrifying night eight years ago, Isobel took someone else's identity. She seized a chance for a fresh start and walked away into another woman's life without thinking about what she'd done.

Now, when she crosses paths with estranged 'relations', Isobel is presented with a choice. Does she protect her new life, the one that allows her freedom and a career? Or, if she tells the truth, will it mean she's failing the people she's always hoped to protect - as well as losing any chance at love?

From the author of MY MOTHER'S SHADOW, SUMMER OF SECRETS and THE ORCHARD GIRLS: an evocative new novel of one woman struggling to protect herself and her dreams, in a city in tatters. Can Isobel hide her secret - or will love force her hand?
