My Review: I truly enjoyed Mary Jane’s journey as difficult and tormenting as it was at times, her strength and tenacity make her inspiring. Fleeing Ireland to live in Liverpool after her fiance is killed, she travels with is twin Red to Liverpool, ensuring she is far away from her brothers. Red is a bit of a character and not always the nicest most trustworthy either. Her friendships on Beamer Street also include Cal Everdine. A recommended read. Enjoy.

Finding Friends on Beamer Street

The start of a brand new series from Sheila Riley, bestselling author of the Reckoner’s Row saga series!

Liverpool 1921

Pregnant, Mary Jane Starlings secret wedding to Paddy Redfern ends in disaster when her fiancé is murdered on the way to the church. Paddy’s wayward twin ‘Red’ intercepts Mary Jane and warns that they must flee Ireland for fear of reprisals from her family, never to return.

Too young and terrified to question Red’s motives, Mary Jane, is hurriedly escorted to Liverpool where she quickly discovers Red’s good Samaritan act is a sham when he abandons her homeless and destitute.

However, strength, fortitude and good luck save her when she catches the eye of reclusive Cal Everdine and is befriended by Molly Hayward’s lovable family.

But Mary Jane still has to live with the overbearing guilt of the secrets she holds.

Will she ever be able to follow her dreams and reconcile her past?
