Bitter rivalries and forbidden love are at the heart of this powerful sage from Pamela Evans

The fog swirled around the crowd at the graveside; Bob Brown had been a popular man. But Bella's thoughts were dark - Frank Bennett had killed her father as surely as if he had taken a knife to him.

Since the end of the war, when Bob had taken over the car workshop in London, Frank Bennett had been trying to get his hands on it. An East Ender made good by his quick wits and unscrupulous business methods, Frank was determined to get the prime site - whatever the cost. For as long as she could remember, Bella had been drawn to the river, and to the ivy-covered house on the promenade where she first met Dezi Bennett, Frank's son. They became unlikely friends, though both families disapproved. Years later, their love blossomed, and it seemed that nothing, not even the feud between their fathers, could prevent their marriage. Until Bob's tragic death and his dying request to Bella .....
