The Shop Girls of Chapel Street

(2016)
A novel by

 
 
Orphaned young, Violet Wheeler has been brought up by her aunt - but after Winnie's death, she feels like she’s lost everything. With no-one to turn to, she has to rely on the goodwill of the community to help her out.

At the Jubilee drapers, amongst the spools of ribbon, skeins of silk and latest thirties fashions, Violet finds a refuge. She’s offered a chance to get back on her feet, and with that an unexpected chance to discover love. It’s only when a forgotten piece of jewellery with a mysterious note surfaces that Violet is thrown back in to the past again, and starts to wonder what secrets there might be in her family’s history.

As Violet becomes desperate to find answers about her mother and father, long-buried secrets threaten the stable life she’s been building. Can her new friends steer Violet towards a happy ending against all the odds?

A heart-warming, nostalgic tale of triumph over adversity that readers of Katie Flynn, Donna Douglas and Call the Midwife will adore.
