A Glimpse of the Mersey

A Glimpse of the Mersey

With the promise of happiness on the horizon, can a young woman help those she loves to achieve the same?

A heart-warming and touching saga, Anne Baker’s A Glimpse of the Mersey follows a young woman’s eventful search for happiness and belonging. Perfect for fans of Dilly Court and Sheila Newberry.

Daisy Corkill has never known who her parents were – or why they left her to be brought up by the couple she calls ‘Uncle’ Ern and ‘Aunt’ Gladys. Daisy yearns for the love and security that a family of her own would give her, but she finds comfort in her relationship with Brenda, her older ‘sister’. One day in 1919 Brenda arrives home flushed with excitement. She has agreed to marry businessman Gil Fox. Daisy is horrified, for she doesn’t trust the handsome Gil. And soon after their wedding, Brenda realises that Gil isn’t the man she thought he was. But Daisy’s dreams are about to come true; a family of her own is finally within her reach. But will it be enough to get her through some stormy times?
