A Mother's Fight
Will love be enough to protect her children?
After her husband Jack is transported to Australia as a convict, Hannah and her children are sent to the workhouse. Hearing nothing from Jack and believing he’s dead, Hannah reluctantly agrees to marry widower Ellis Duxbury.
But her children must remain in the workhouse, and when they are sent away as apprentices, it’s up to Hannah to track them down.
On Christmas Eve, Hannah is blessed with a miracle when Jack returns to the village. Yet more trouble lies ahead as Hannah is arrested, accused of bigamy and threatened with deportation herself. Having fought so long for her and her children’s freedom, Hannah must once more dig deep to keep her family together.
A gripping and inspiring saga for readers of Val Wood and Emma Hornby.
