Synopsis

*PRE-ORDER NOW*



With her trademark warmth and powerful characters, Winter's Daughter is a stunning new Victorian saga from the Sunday Times bestseller Val Wood - about a young child separated from her mother, and the family who bring her in from the cold.



Hull, 1856



The wealthy Ripley family have always looked out for the poor of Hull - particularly those who have no roof over their heads, save for a cellar below ground where they shelter from the elements.



One dark winter's night, during a torrential storm, the cellar floods and the Ripleys rush to help. Among those rescued is a dark-haired little girl who speaks a language no one can understand. Some claim to have seen her mother - an English woman, fair-haired and beautiful in silken clothes - but no one knows where she is now, and the only person who could have told them died the previous night.



Praise for Val Wood:



'A heart-warming story filled with compelling action' Rosie Goodwin

'Hull's answer to Catherine Cookson' BBC Radio 4's Front Row

'Wonderfully fully-fleshed characters are the mainstay of [Val Wood's] stories' Peterborough Telegraph

'With fully developed characters and a compelling story, it's no wonder the author won the Catherine Cookson Prize for Fiction for her debut... A great choice for a book club' Belfast Telegraph
