Publisher's Summary

From Ireland to Kings Cross, a legacy of loss and hope echoes across the generations....

Tinahely, Ireland, 1959.

Rosie Hart is content leaving her home behind to follow her new husband to Australia. But she soon discovers there is no room for her or their young son in the life he has built in vibrant Kings Cross. As their marriage crumbles, Rosie will need to fight for the golden future her son deserves...until the day her world is shattered and all hope turns to dust.

Eighteen years later, haunted by her past, Rosie is determined her daughter Maggie will follow the path she has set out for her. But when Maggie rejects her plans and moves out of home, all Rosie can hope is that she has also left behind the grief that plagues the Hart name.

Sydney, 2017. 

When her grandmother dies and leaves Brianna Hart a secret apartment in Kings Cross, Brie wonders what else Rosie was keeping from her. As Brie chases the truth of Rosie's past she uncovers an incredible story of passion, violence, love and tragedy.

Is the Hart family's legacy of loss inescapable, or has Rosie gifted her granddaughter with a future of hope?

Absolutley Loved It !

Absolutely loved this book, can't wait for next one.

My only suggestion is (nothing to do with the story) and this goes for all audio books ,that the female characters should be read by female and male characters by males
