Two young women face the consequences of the Great War...
As the First World War draws to a close, the lives of two young women become entangled in love, ambition and trouble in Margaret Thornton's engaging saga, There's a Silver Lining, the sequel to A Pair of Sparkling Eyes. Perfect for fans of Dilly Court and Katie Flynn.
It's 1918, the war is finally over, and Sarah Donnelly and her cousin Nancy are filled with hope for the future. In particular, Sarah eagerly awaits the safe return of her cousin Zachary, whom she has adored since childhood. But when Zachary returns to Blackpool, shattered by the horrors of war, he can barely face his family let alone reciprocate Sarah's affections.
Refusing to be thwarted by rejection, Sarah throws herself into her job at Donnelly's tea rooms, where her father, the owner of Blackpool's most popular department store, has allowed her to work. Then Sarah spies a run-down building to let near North Shore, and decides to set up in business, running her own tea rooms.
Meanwhile, Nancy, forever a dreamer, has chosen to follow in her mother's footsteps onto the stage, but it is not long before her youthful naivety lands her in trouble...
