Our Fair Lily
- Rosie Goodwin
Wednesday’s child is full of woe . . .
For Nessie Carson, life is a constant struggle. When her mother is brutally murdered and her father abandons them, Nessie must keep her family safe and protect her fragile brother Joseph.
Nessie soon attracts the attention of her lecherous landlord, Seth Grimshaw. Cantankerous and repulsive in equal measure, he sees Nessie as the perfect wife. And he will stop at nothing to get
what he wants.
Taking on a job assisting the local undertaker, Nessie hopes things are looking up. When Joseph’s health suddenly deteriorates Nessie meets the newly qualified doctor, Oliver Dorsey. As dashing as he is kind, Nessie is attracted to him though she knows they can never be together. And then her sister Marcie brings shame on the family.
But even in the darkest of times, and saddest of places, when you’re as spirited as Nessie Carson, there is light, love and the promise of happiness if you’re only brave enough to search for it . . .
The perfect treat for fans of Dilly Court, Katie Flynn and Catherine Cookson.
