What to expect

On the cobbled streets of Bradford in 1931, Lily Briggs does all she can to keep trouble at bay for her and her family.

She works hard at Calvert Mill to make ends meet and take care of her parents and younger siblings. Saturday nights at the dance hall and dressmaking with her two best friends keep Lily upbeat, and now there’s a blossoming romance with childhood friend Harry Bainbridge to put an extra spring in her step, too.

But then a run of misfortune threatens Lily’s work, home and personal life, and she has to rely on the community at the mill to rally together for support. With so many others to worry about, will Lily always put them first or can she find her own happy ending?

A heart-warming, nostalgic tale of triumph over adversity that readers of Katie Flynn, Margaret Dickinson and Call the Midwife will adore.
