Can you really escape the past?


Blackwell North Amer
It seemed like the answer to their prayers; a cash-in-hand residential job in a part of the country where no one would know them. To single mother Bridget Sweeny and her daughter it means a fresh start, with new names and hope for the future. But Rospetroc, the Bodmin manor-house Bridget has agreed to caretake, has its own secrets; a history of high staff turnover and a certain reputation in the village. It's not long before Bridget begins to suspect that she and Yasmin are not alone there ...
Hold my Hand is the new novel from author Serena Mackesy. Told as two intertwining tales, it follows the history of Lily Rickett, a nine-year-old urchin from the Portsmouth docks evacuated during the Second World War to the unwelcoming arms of the dysfunctional Blakemore family, and of Bridget Sweeny and little Yasmin, who have their own urgent reasons for leaving London. The lives of the three connect in a chilling tale of murder and revenge.
