When Tomorrow Dawns

When Tomorrow Dawns

It’s 1945, and war is finally over. But for one young woman, the future is full of uncertainty…

Lyn Andrews writes a powerful saga in When Tomorrow Dawns, the story of a young mother’s battle for a place to call home amid the aftermath of the Second World War. Perfect for fans of Anne Baker, Nadine Dorries and Cathy Sharp.

1945. The people of Liverpool, after six years of terror and grief and getting by, are making the best of the hard-won peace, none more so than the ebullient O’Sheas. They welcome widowed Mary O’Malley from Dublin, her young son Kevin, and Breda, her bold strap of a sister, with open arms and hearts.
Mary is determined to make a fresh start for her family, despite Breda, who is soon up to her old tricks. At first all goes well, and Mary begins to build an understanding with their new neighbour Chris Kennedy – until events take a dramatic turn that puts Chris beyond her reach. Forced to leave the shelter of the O’Sheas’ home, humiliated and bereft, Mary faces a future that is suddenly uncertain once more. But she knows that life has to go on…
