Yesterday's Girl

On her way home from London to Lancashire, she meets a man to whom she’s attracted. Recently demobbed, Joss Bentley has no job or home, and with his wife dead in childbirth, he has a new baby to care for - only it’s not his child.

As he searches grimly for its real father, he runs up against people who are trying to conceal dark secrets, and will use any means necessary to keep the facts hidden. And Vi finds herself faced with conflicting loyalties. Whichever way she moves, it seems she’ll hurt someone - or they’ll hurt her.

Anna Jacobs brilliantly recreates life in 1919 in this gripping story of a brave man and woman struggling to make new lives for themselves.
