The House on Lonely Street

A completely gripping saga of friendship, tragedy and escape

By Lyn Andrews

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

Her father's murder drives Katherine to seek refuge in Liverpool - but she could now be in great danger... A powerful and nostalgic saga of Dublin and Liverpool from the bestselling author of FROM LIVERPOOL WITH LOVE and EVERY MOTHER'S SON.

If you love the novels of Kitty Neale and Donna Douglas, don't miss Lyn Andrews' Sunday Times bestseller THE HOUSE ON LONELY STREET.

For Katherine Donovan the slums of Dublin are a lonely place. Her father, a pawnbroker, is the most hated man in the district, and Katherine an outcast. Her only friend is tiny Ceppi Healy, underfed, irrepressible and, the youngest in a neglected family of eight, as much an emotional orphan as eighteen-year-old Katherine.

Then, one night, the unthinkable happens. Katherine's father is murdered, a victim of local revenge for an act of cruelty even she couldn't have anticipated. Fearing for her life, Katherine flees, taking with her the desperate young Ceppi.

Liverpool is her longed-for haven and, with the last of her father's money, she rents a lodging house in a street decimated by the sinking of the Titanic. But, far from finding a refuge for herself and little girl she promised to protect, she realises she has put them into the path of terrible danger...

Biographical Notes

Lyn Andrews was born in Liverpool in 1944; her father Joseph was killed on D-Day just nine months later. Lyn was brought up in Liverpool and became a secretary before she married and gave birth to triplets. Once the children had gone to school Lyn began writing, and her first novel was quickly accepted for publication. She has since written over thirty books, many of them Sunday Times bestsellers.

Lyn lives on the Isle of Man, but spends many weeks of the year back on Merseyside, seeing her children and grandchildren.
