For typist Sadie Bell, the 1960s promise a decade of mini-skirts, pop music and endless possibilities. Young and carefree, she lives happily with her parents and older brothers in Hammersmith. When Sadie meets Paul Winston at a Cliff Richard concert, it marks the beginning of a new chapter in her life. Falling head over heels in love, the couple can't wait to be married and move in to Paul's parents' home in a beautiful Surrey village until they can afford a place of their own. Despite the disapproval of her mother-in-law, Sadie is deeply happy with her new husband. But Paul and Sadie's joy is tragically short-lived and Sadie returns to London alone and pregnant. Although heartbroken, Sadie finds support in her family and close friend Brenda, and a new sense of purpose with the birth of her baby girl, Rosie. But life has more surprises in store for Sadie, and a terrible secret threatens to take everything away from her once more...

I really think the author has lost the plot with this one - pun intended. The story line is contrived and unbelievable, with drama after drama, page after page.
The "big secret" which with we are teased throughout the book, turns out to be so feeble, it is pathetic. Reading this book was a waste of my time.
