Abstract:

A chance meeting in Liverpool will change Megan Lloyd's life in ways she could never have imagined...August, 1942. 21-year-old Megan Lloyd is determined to do her bit for the war effort - and a chance encounter with an American army officer in Liverpool gives her an idea of how to do just that. Appalled at the plight of young women left pregnant and destitute following ill-fated love affairs with passing sailors or American GIs, Megan determines to establish a place of refuge for unmarried mothers - a plan which incurs her father's intense disapproval. But Megan finds herself unprepared for the challenges that lie ahead. Trauma, drama, heartbreak and moments of great joy will follow - and in the midst of it all Megan will find unexpected love.
