Booklist Review

Jonas Ward is not a nice man, and in his grief, he is vindictive. When his wife dies in childbirth while visiting her sister in the small town of Sweet Wells, England, he breaks off all contact with the family. When his brother-in-law approaches him for money years later, Jonas asks for the title to the ancestral home in return. Rose, his sister-in-law, discovers this when her husband dies and Jonas tosses her and her daughter, Maddy, out. Rose and Maddy make a new life for themselves in rooms above the local store, but life is difficult in the years leading up to World War II. Then Maddy meets up with a bad boy with troubles of his own. When things get serious, she must refuse him, at first because her mother says so, then later because Maddy finds out he is the nephew of the man who turned her life upside down. Once again, Gill demonstrates her gift for vividly evoking time and place while creating truly memorable characters.--Hatton, Maria Copyright 2008 Booklist
