Whispers on the Water - Audrey Howard
Her new Liverpool saga
Liverpool in the early years of the twentieth century is the setting for Audrey Howard's bittersweet story of a courageous girl who becomes a woman against a background of tragedy, war - and a love that transcends both.
The first time Grace Tooley meets Rupert Bradley she is the tomboyish only girl in a happy, noisy family of six boys. He comes back into her life when her eldest brother's sudden death has forced her to take on burdens beyond her years. From that moment, Grace gives her heart and soul to her brother's kind, handsome, rich friend, even though he sees her as a mere girl and goes on to marry a young woman from his own station in life.
Then they meet again, when the Great War has changed them both into very different people. Now, it is Grace who has faced the demons of loss and pain and emerged as a strong, passionate woman. Rupert, bowed and nearly broken by the horrors he has endured, has also been humiliated by the bride who once seemed so right for him.
Brutally, he rejects not only Grace's love but also any hope of future happiness. But he underestimated Grace Tooley. Determined that she will have the only man she wants, Grace Tooley believes she can find the boy she loved in the wreck of a man who is ready to die.
Grace's unforgettable family and dramatic story make this one of the most vivid of Audrey Howard's novels.
