The warm-hearted sequel to Shoddy Prince, set in 1920s York and Australia, by the bestselling Yorkshire author of the 'Feeney' Saga.

In an attempt to start life over again, the Prince family - Bright, Nat and Oriel - move from York to Melbourne, Australia, full of hope and optimism for the future. But unresolved problems from their pasts trouble them still. In this new epic of suffering, hardship and, ultimately, happiness, Oriel emerges as the central character. When, on the rebound from a passionate affair, she enters an unwise marriage, a train of events is set in motion that results in scandal and ruin...

Sheelagh Kelly, with her wonderful storytelling gifts, her sympathetic observations of character, her ear for dialogue and her wry sense of humour, gives us again a deeply satisfying novel about the triumphs and failures of ordinary people that will enchant her many fans.
