The Tender Flame
By Anne Saunders
Jan Ashton came to Yorkshire to escape. She became a nanny for four-year-old Stephanie whose mother, Annabel Spedding was confined to a wheelchair as the result of a car accident. But six months later Annabelle dies. Jan’s job hangs in the balance as she waits for Annabel’s estranged husband, David, to return. Jan is disgusted with him for abandoning his disabled wife, and young child, and even more shocked when he doesn’t even turn up for Annabel’s funeral. And so she can’t resist giving him a piece of her mind when he returns. David fires her, but Jan is determined not to leave without a fight. Can you she convince David that she is the best person for Stephanie? Was there more to David and Annabel’s relationship than meets the eye? And could Jan’s hatred for David turn into passion…?
