*PRE-ORDER NOW*With her trademark warmth and powerful characters, Winter’s Daughter is a stunning new Victorian saga from the Sunday Times bestseller Val Wood – about a young child separated from her mother, and the family who bring her in from the cold.Hull, 1856The wealthy Ripley family have always looked out for the poor of Hull – particularly those who have no roof over their heads, save for a cellar below ground where they shelter from the elements.One dark winter’s night, during a torrential storm, the cellar floods and the Ripleys rush to help. Among those rescued is a dark-haired little girl who speaks a language no one can understand. Some claim to have seen her mother – an English woman, fair-haired and beautiful in silken clothes – but no one knows where she is now, and the only person who could have told them died the previous night.Praise for Val Wood:’A heart-warming story filled with compelling action’ Rosie Goodwin’Hull’s answer to Catherine Cookson’ BBC Radio 4’s Front Row’Wonderfully fully-fleshed characters are the mainstay of [Val Wood’s] stories’ Peterborough Telegraph’With fully developed characters and a compelling story, it’s no wonder the author won the Catherine Cookson Prize for Fiction for her debut… A great choice for a book club’ Belfast Telegraph]]>
