The Lost Daughter of Liverpool by Pam Howes. Published by Bookouture

It’s 1946 and at last the war is over. Life slowly begins to normal in Liverpool and Doris Evans is marrying her true love, Joe Rodgers. With twins on the way, Doris dreams of opening a dressmaking shop, it seems as if, finally, everything she ever wanted is within her grasp. But the death of one of her children and a terrible fire turn her dreams to ash. It’s all Doris can do to get through the day. Joe seems almost indifferent to his wife’s suffering and is spending more and more time with his work colleague, Ivy, a woman who would love to make Joe her own. This is a thoughtful story about the differences between men and women and how they respond to tragedy, and ultimately, can make their way back to each others side
