Walking on The Paths of Stones, by Sue Stokes

a5988bac-00e5-4615-bfe5-e98526fc1219

The year is 1919 and the seven members of the Watkins family are enjoying their first summer together after the cease of hostilities of the Great War, but everything is about to change.

Plunged into poverty by unexpected and tragic events, the family are forced to leave Crossdale in Lancashire and head for London in search of work. Here they encounter the famous and charismatic photographer Patrick Lawrence, who offers to house and help them into employment.

Although Patrick is genuinely philanthropic and kind, Thomas, the eldest of the Watkins family is suspicious of his motives while Thomas's sister, the feisty Etty, becomes smitten with Patrick. It isn't long before unimaginable secrets begin to surface putting the family at odds with each other, which truly causes them to walk on paths of stones.

"It's a great story, charting the lives of a displaced family who are trying to start again." M D Murphy (Author, Dark River Melody)

“The story of a family, and their struggle to survive so many adversities, was hard to put down; a real page-turner! If you like Catherine Cookson, you will love this book.” Amazon Review
