Where the Mersey Flows

Where the Mersey Flows

A young girl determines to leave her privileged upbringing behind for Liverpool’s slums, but can her new life bring love and happiness?

Lyn Andrews writes a compelling saga in Where the Mersey Flows – a reminder of the power of friendship, loyalty and love. Perfect for fans of Anne Baker, Katie Flynn and Cathy Sharp.

Leah Cavendish and Nora O’Brian seem to have little in common – except their friendship. Nora is a domestic servant and Leah the daughter of a wealthy haulage magnate but both are isolated beneath the roof of the opulent Cavendish household. Instantly they recognise kindred spirits in each other.

When Nora is unfairly flung on to the streets by Leah’s grasping brother-in-law, the outraged Leah follows her, defiantly declaring her intention to move into a house in Liverpool’s docklands, alongside Nora and her impoverished family. But nothing can prepare Leah for the squalor that greets her in Oil Street. Nor for Sean Maguire, Nora’s defiant Irish neighbour…
