Publisher Description

A mother's love knows no bounds...

Gosport, 1941. Fourteen-year-old Vera has led a sheltered life with her overbearing, religious mother and older sister. But her world is turned upside down with the arrival of the Lovell family on her street. Vera quickly befriends the daughter, Angela, an impulsive, worldly young woman who opens Vera's eyes to what she has been missing. But Vera, unaware of the effect she has on men, invites the unwanted attention of Angela's father, with devastating consequences.

Outraged at the news that her teenage daughter is pregnant, Vera's mother sends her to a home for wayward girls. After giving birth to a baby boy, Vera manages to escape the brutality of the institution, only to end up homeless. Alone and struggling to make ends meet, Vera is determined to give her son a better life - at any cost. But just as their fortunes seem to change for the better, everything Vera has worked for is threatened...

Excellent

I started reading June Hampson's 'Daisy Lane' series a couple of years ago and always found the books to be thoroughly entertaining. From Gosport to London, many characters have been introduced throughout the series. Some have been good; some have been bad and some, positively menacing. However, out of all the characters, Vera and Kibbles (the cat) were always my favourite and in this story, one finally gets to know the Vera behind the woman with the impossibly high heels, frilly blouse and false eyelashes. The woman with the kind heart! 'A Mother's Journey' is a wonderful read; heartfelt and understandable, considering the alternatives. Shocking even, in the way trusted people abuse, yet full of pathos and I am not ashamed to say, that in parts, the story had me in tears. I would thoroughly recommend this book, even to those who have not yet been introduced to the 'Daisy Lane' series and to all those who enjoy loosing themselves in a jolly good novel.
