No Silver Spoon by Katie Flynn
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Love, hardship and betrayal in the glorious Irish countryside and the streets of the Liverpool slums, in the heartwarming new saga from a rising star. Dympna Byrne grows up on the Connemara coast in poverty- her father Michael goes to sea whilst her mother Beatrice makes each penny do the work of five. With five mouths to feed, they rub along by working hard and expecting little. Dympna's relationship with her mother is troubled, and when disaster strikes, her mother sends her away, across the water to Liverpool, to earn money for the family. Meanwhile, in Liverpool, orphaned Jimmy Ruddock is also struggling to grow up. He is weedy and underfed until he meets Elsie, a tough young slum-dweller, who helps him to better himself. Then he signs on aboard a Fleetwood trawler and his path crosses Dympna's for the first time. . .
