Lovers and Liars

By Josephine Cox

Another page-turning story of tragedy and triumph from the No.1 bestselling author of The Loner and The Journey.

It is 1902. Emily is sixteen years of age and blissfully in love with John, two years her senior. They are secretly planning a life together, when they are violently driven apart.

Denied the man she loves, and dominated by a brutally possessive uncle, Emily is left devastated when she is cruelly taken advantage of. When a child is born, she cannot reveal the identity of the father to anyone, or there will be a terrible price to pay.

Trapped and ashamed, she seeks solace in her daughter, Cathleen, but there is little consolation. Emily resigns herself to the fact that her true love may never return, and her life begins to take another direction, but John is never far from her mind.

But when history threatens to repeat itself and she is once again in danger, Emily must put all thoughts of John aside and find a way to safeguard her daughter.

Josephine Cox was born in Blackburn, one of ten children. At the age of sixteen, Josephine met and married her husband Ken, and had two sons. When the boys started school, she decided to go to college and eventually gained a place at Cambridge University. She was unable to take this up as it would have meant living away from home, but she went into teaching – and started to write her first full-length novel. She won the ‘Superwoman of Great Britain’ Award, for which her family had secretly entered her, at the same time as her novel was accepted for publication.
