The Woman from Dover
You can never escape your past...
Stung with the bitter loss of the life she had built, Gladys's story from The Girl from Old Nichol continues with Gladys as a housekeeper for the wealthy widower, James Hornby. Reunited with Toughie for one night before he leaves for New York with his bride, their romantic interlude leaves Gladys alone and pregnant. Fearing the workhouse, Gladys confesses all to James, who offers to marry her and legitimize Toughie’s baby.
The new family lives happily, adding a daughter of their own. When Toughie returns years later as a widower, he meets his son and begs Gladys to travel to New York with him. Torn between the man she has loved since childhood and a comfortable life of luxury for herself and her children, Gladys faces a decision that will only lead to devastation; no matter what choice she makes, someone will be hurt and abandoned.
The compelling story of Gladys Tunner continues in this delightful sequel. Although she's put the slums behind her, the challenges she faces are no less perilous. As she journeys through the ups and downs of her ever-changing life, Gladys's story will have you yearning for her to finally find happiness.
