Midnight's Smiling

(1998)
A novel by

 
 
Dr George Cochrane was one of the richest men in Salford yet he devoted his life working as a slum doctor for the poor. No household was too dismal, no patient too poor. But his arrogance and self-belief could not save his own wife and he grew apart from his only son, Michael, who loved his mother and could not forgive his father for not saving her life.

Years later, Michael returns from the war and becomes a doctor, practising with his father, an uneasy truce between them. When he meets and marries Sylvia, life appears to return to some semblance of normality in their big house, Aynhams, especially when their two daughters are born.

Michael's best friend, brilliant, ambitious and ruthless Harry Chadwick, born in the filthy backstreets, comes to live with them and soon turns Aynhams into an operating theatre for Harry's growing plastic surgery practice where he soon becomes famous and successful for his work in the world. But Harry, who had nothing, finds Aynhams the home he had always longed for and it seems, even that is not enough ... The lives of Michael, Sylvia and their two grown-up daughters collide into a series of heartbreaking consequences that none of them could have been prepared for.

A pacey story of unrequited love and of ultimate betrayal that will leave you reading right to the very end.
