THE DARTMOOR GIRL
A dramatic and poignant tale of one girl’s quest for the truth.
Originally published as Lily’s Journey.
Dartmoor, 1952. When fifteen-year-old Lily Hayes loses her mother, she finds herself at a crossroads: go to a children’s home or leave the bright lights of London to live with her estranged father in the wilds of Dartmoor.
Lily moves from London to Dartmoor determined and excited to find out the truth about where she came from.
Her dour father, Sidney, can be sullen and he has a temper on him. He seems to want nothing to do with her, but Lily vows to make the best of things. There are some things she is grateful for — especially the handsome and charming Edwin Franfield.
As Sidney’s gruff manner gradually thaws, Lily learns a little more about her family’s history — and discovers that some secrets are better left untold.
Will Lily discover her true identity and find happiness among the dramatic wilderness of Dartmoor, or will the past drive her back whence she came?
