The Favourite Child


A stirring tale of a woman with an iron purpose’

The Keswick Reminder on The Favourite Child


‘a compelling and fascinating tale’ Middlesborough Evening Gazette


Isabella Ashton has always been her father’s favourite, but when she becomes involved with the new Birth Control Movement, Simeon is scandalised. It’s 1928 and running a family planning clinic in Salford is challenging but rewarding work, and Bella is grateful for the help of Violet Howarth, a big, generous-hearted woman who takes her in off the street.


A friendship with Violet’s son, Dan, quickly turns to love. But Bella also becomes involved with handsome ne’er-do-well Billy Quinn, leader of an illegal betting ring, and soon finds everything she has worked for put at risk, and herself in mortal danger. . .
