Blurb: The Lost Daughter
Hull, 1930. A terrified woman runs through the dark, rain-lashed streets pursued by a man, desperate to reach the sanctuary of the local police station. Alice Goddard runs with one thing in her mind: her daughter. In her panic she is hit by a car at speed and rushed to hospital. When she awakes, she has no memory of who she is, but at night she dreams of being hunted by a man, and of a little girl.
As the weeks pass and her memories gradually resurface, Alice anxiously searches for her daughter, but no one is forthcoming about the girl’s whereabouts – even her own mother is evasive. Penniless and homeless, Alice must begin again and rebuild her life, never giving up hope that one day she will be reunited with her lost daughter.

My Review ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A child is the most precious of gifts…. what would you do if that gift was snatched from you in the most cruel way?

A wonderfully woven story beginning in the between years of war. Alice’s story starts with an accident and lose of memory of her life before. Slowly but surely things begin to piece back together and we are taken on a journey full of love, heartache, self discovery and learning. Alice speaks of her mother at one point as a person with overwhelming grit and determination and the immense pride she feels for her. This is testament to her character. I felt the same way about her and saw the same traits in her as well as her resilience, kindness and strength. There is a great array of characters that add depth and intensity to the story. A sweet, emotional, beautiful, thoroughly descriptive and hopeful story at time of great trepidation with a wonderful insight into nursing during war time. A full circle story that ends in such a heartwarming way.
