By Maureen Lee
A powerful, heart-warming new novel from the Sunday Times No 1 Bestseller
Liverpool, 1950. They say you can choose your friends, but you can't choose your family. Yet when Violet Duffy is asked to give a home to the orphaned children of a distant relative, it is precisely the choice she must face. Can she turn her spinster life upside down and take these lost souls into her little house on Amber Street?
Abby and Will have had young lives full of tragedy. Life with Violet offers love and safety. But as they grow up, their past won't let them be. Turning into teenagers only makes them more curious to know about life beyond the Liverpool streets they've come to know. Will they choose Violet, or the lure of bigger cities and new horizons?
All three of them will need friends at their side as they face up to what they really want. Private passions, tough choices, lost loves and second chances pull them in different directions, but wherever life takes them, the door is always open at Amber Street - after all, it's love that makes a house a home.
