‘In the grand tradition of sagas set down by the late and great Catherine Cookson’ Jean Fullerton on Blackpool Lass

Troubles lie ahead – will friendship see them through?


Martha is seventeen and alone in the world. Of Irish descent, her flashing green eyes see into your soul. Foretelling the future is a gift passed down by her late grandmother and is how she earns her living on Blackpool Promenade. Though she spends hours in a little tent, waiting and hoping for a customer.

Trisha is Martha’s neighbour and quickly becomes her dearest friend, but she is pregnant and married to a brutal man. And when tragedy strikes, she finds herself alone, her future uncertain.

Together, on one of the poorest streets in Blackpool, the girls face poverty, as is their lot, but they’re determined to help each other any way they can, and they never stop dreaming of a brighter future.

Will a chance encounter on the promenade change their fortunes?

The first in a brand-new heart-warming family saga series from Maggie Mason, much-loved author of The Halfpenny Girls. Perfect for fans of Val Wood, Kitty Neale and Rosie Goodwin. And don’t miss the next book – The Fortune Tellers’ Secret.
