9780099527398: Whispers of Love

It is 1914 and Christabel Blakemore is happily preparing for her wedding when she receives the shattering news that her fiancé has drowned at sea. Heartbroken, she tries to piece her life together, but she soon discovers she is pregnant. Knowing that she cannot bring up a baby alone, an increasingly desperate Christabel has little choice but to seek assistance from her brother, Lewis. He finds her cheap lodgings in the poorest part of Liverpool and helps get the baby adopted, promising to never speak of the child again. Just as her life seems about to return to normalcy, Christabel’s mother suddenly takes ill, and she is forced to return home to look after her. But here she finds life ever more difficult and envies her brother's wife, Violet, who has just had a new baby. Christabel finds herself filled with remorse and regret about what she has done, and wonders if she will ever be free from the fateful decision she made.

About the Author:

Rosie Harris is the author of nineteen books, including At Sixes and Sevens, A Dream of Love, Looking for Love, and Love Against All Odds.

From Booklist:

At the dawn of WWI, Christabel Montgomery finds herself in dire need of help. Her fiancé has just died, drowned at sea, and now she is pregnant. Rather than admit her predicament to her parents, she leaves home to become a nurse at the army hospital outside Liverpool. Terrified of what will happen when the baby comes, she begs her brother, Lewis, to help her. Lewis reluctantly agrees to pay for her to take sick leave to have the baby and arranges for the adoption but spends most of his time worrying about his pregnant wife. What Christabel doesn’t know is that Lewis, whose baby dies the same day Christabel gives birth, adopts the baby as his own without telling Christabel or his wife. Christabel’s life takes its twists and turns after the war ends, but she always wonders what Lewis did with her daughter. A touching story about the winding road of life and finally finding what you didn’t even realize you missed. --Hilary Hatton
