A HEARTWARMING AND HEART-WRENCHING NEW SAGA SERIES FROM BESTSELLING AUTHOR BILL KITSON.
Please note this book was previously published as Renaissance.
From humble origins, the Cowgill family have bettered their lot. Through love and loss, hope and heartbreak, they work hard and face their troubles together, no matter what life throws at them.
Sonny Cowgill is slowly regaining his memory. He was declared missing in action in the First World War, presumed dead. But Sonny’s beloved wife Rachel found him and brought him home.
As he rebuilds his relationship with his wife and learns how to be a father to the son he never knew he had, memories begin to resurface. Sonny remembers something that the Cowgill family thought lost forever — the whereabouts of his eldest brother. James was disowned by their father and never seen again after he ran off with the housemaid. Can the family finally be reunited?
Sonny also discovers that the family’s business is in ruins. His cousin Clarence was left in charge after the war, but has just been charged with embezzlement, and even worse, murder.
Not for the first time, the Cowgill family must rebuild their reputation — and their business. But before long, tragedy strikes again as Europe is pulled into another devastating war.
Discover the trials and tribulations of a Yorkshire family through the decades.
Readers of Sheila Riley, Pam Howes, Lizzie Lane, Tania Crosse, Dilly Court, Dinah Jeffries, Suzanne Goldring and all fans of Downton Abbey and The Forsyte Saga will devour this touching saga series.
