The Yearning Heart

‘A heart-warming story of family relationships set with well-drawn characters you will both love and hate’ Val Wood
East Yorkshire, 1941. Fran Bewholme arrives home heartbroken after her sweetheart has turned his attention to another. Rather than finding comfort for her distress, she is seduced by her brother-in-law and manipulated into keeping the act a secret. Months later it can remain hidden no longer, and Fran finds herself pregnant and alone, shunned by her family. When she gives birth to twins, her mother heartlessly wrenches the babies from her, and Fran is overcome with despair. After years of loneliness and yearning, she will remain determined to reunite with the family that was taken from her, no matter what it takes.
