Silver linings

Gray, Millie, author; Mackie, Lesley

1939: The unexpected death of Sandra Anderson dramatically and ruthlessly changes forever the lives of the family she leaves behind. Kitty, her spoiled and pampered fifteen-year-old daughter, has to give up her dreams of a career, as she becomes the family drudge. Sandra's heartbroken husband, Johnny, finds solace for his grief by becoming the main mouthpiece for his Trade Union in the shipyards, leaving little time for new-born Rosebud, whose birth caused her mother's death. And to add to what seems insurmountable problems, Kitty and Johnny must try to fulfil the death bed promises they made to Sandra, which makes a nearly impossible situation even worse
