9780007511341: Where I Found You

A touching and emotional novel from the author of Richard and Judy pick YESTERDAY'S SUN. Maggie Carter knows Victoria Park like the back of her hand. She knows which routes around the park are easiest to navigate; she knows what time of year the most beautiful flowers bloom; and she knows which bench by the pond allows you to hear the joyful chatter of children throwing bread to the ducks without risking getting splashed by over-enthusiastic flapping. But she's never seen any of these things. Maggie is blind: her senses of touch, smell and hearing have built an image of the place she loves most in the world, and she's never felt held back by her unseeing eyes. And yet, newly married and expecting her first baby, Maggie has suddenly started to doubt her ability to cope. Elsie is also expecting her first child, but unmarried, alone and without the support of her family, she's terrified her baby will be taken away. When Maggie meets Elsie one day in the park she tries to comfort this distressed young woman - but all is not as it seems. Because Elsie lost her baby sixty years earlier, and now, suffering from the first stages of Alzheimer's, she can't stop re-living the most traumatic event in her life. Determined to bring Elsie back to the present, Maggie sets out to find out what happened all those years ago and bring peace to Elsie memories ...before it's too late.
