The Lost Daughters

By Jeanne Whitmee

From lost daughters to independent women, they found the courage to follow their dreams

Children of single parents in post-war London, Cathy Oldham and Rosalind Blair’s young lives are blighted by loss. As the 1960s begin, and her loving father Daniel dies, Cathy is left in the care of her godfather Gerald Cavelle, a glamorous concert pianist. She and Gerald marry but the security she craves continues to elude Cathy: confined to their remote hideaway in Suffolk, she feels lonelier than ever before. Rosalind, too, finds the transition to adulthood fraught with difficulty. Even her hard-won career in hotel management looks threatened by her mother’s domineering theatrical ways. Then an unexpected reunion with Cathy gives her new impetus to break free. Together, they enter the hazardous world of business – and start to become independent women…

This heartfelt tale of womanhood, female friendship and coming into your own is another gripping read from Jeanne Whitmee. Perfect if you enjoy the works of Kerry Fisher and Julie Cohen, this book will leave fans of women’s fiction wanting more.

Jeanne Whitmee began her career as an actress. After her marriage and a period spent as a teacher of speech and drama, she achieved a lifelong ambition to become a professional writer. She worked for some years as a freelance writer for popular women’s magazines, writing short stories, serials and, at one time, a weekly column. To date she has published more than thirty novels under various pseudonyms.
