'As heart-warming as it is heartbreaking, this novel is unputdownable' Sunday Express. It is 1953 and five very different girls are arriving at the nurses' home in Lovely Lane, Liverpool, to start their training at St Angelus Hospital. Dana has escaped from her family farm on the west coast of Ireland. Victoria is running away from a debt-ridden aristocratic background. Beth is an army brat and throws her lot in with bitchy Celia Forsyth. And Pammy has come from quite the wrong side of the tracks in Liverpool. The world in which they now find themselves is complicated and hierarchical, with rules that must be obeyed. Everyone has their place at St Angelus and woe betide anyone who strays from it. But when an unknown girl is admitted, after a botched late abortion in a backstreet kitchen, a tragedy begins to unfold which will rock the world of St Angelus to its foundations. Can't wait for the next one? THE CHILDREN OF LOVELY LANE is out now!

In this, Volume I of The Golden Lane Trilogy, we begin the career of Clive Colin O'Reith, International Oil man. He is haunted by a dream that recurs. This is the dream: In the night, O'Reith dreamed again that Holly No.1 burned out of control. The billowing flames, roiling and angry, drove the doomed derrick man ever higher into the skeletal structure of the steel derrick. Like a man mesmerized, rigid and unable to move, he watched the frantic silhouette stiffen and quiver. For a moment the smoking man flailed helplessly in the incandescent air. Then he pitched forward like an awkward diver, cart wheeling into first one, then another, of the glowing gifts. Finally he plummeted, head first, into the inferno.
