Second Chance of Sunshine

No one would blame Molly Hawkins if she envied her best friend Angie Beckett. Blessed with financial security and a loving husband, Angie has everything that Molly lacks. Brian Hawkins is too idle to seek regular employment, and there's never enough money to provide for Molly's six-year-old daughter Rosa. What's more, Brian believes his wife's place is in the home, and, although it's 1956 and women are doing jobs they'd never dreamed of before the war, Molly is forbidden to go out to work. But when Angie's father dies suddenly and leaves Molly a share in the Beckett pottery, it's on the condition that she takes a job there. Seizing the chance to bring in much-needed income, Molly gains strength from her new-found independence - a strength she will need to take her through the tragedy that lies ahead...
