A powerful story of passion, ambition, of grief and of triumph!
Dr George Cochrane was one of the richest men in Salford yet he devoted his life working as a slum doctor for the poor. But his arrogance and self-belief could not save his own wife and he grew apart from his only son, Michael, who could not forgive his father for not saving his beloved mother’s life.
Years later, Michael returns from the war and becomes a doctor, practising with his father, an uneasy truce between them. He meets and marries Sylvia and their two daughters are born in their huge family home, Aynhams.
But their lives start to crumble when Michael’s best friend, brilliant, ambitious and ruthless Harry Chadwick, born in the filthy backstreets, comes to live with them and eventually turns Aynhams into an operating theatre. For Harry, Aynhams is the home he had always longed for but it seems even that is not enough and all of their lives collide into a series of heartbreaking consequences that none of them could have been prepared for.
A pacy story of unrequited love and of ultimate betrayal that will keep you hooked right to the very end.
