Listing Detail Tabs

As the daughter of a blacksmith in a tiny Irish village in the 1920s, sixteen-year-old Kitty Doyle knows little of the ways of the world. But she has to grow up fast when the arrival of a stepmother means she is forced to leave her family home and take up a position as a maid at Harwood Hall.

Kitty's job brings the opportunity for a new and exciting life, taking her across the water to Liverpool - though it's hard for Kitty to leave her beloved sisters behind. The upper classes are fickle, and before long Kitty is facing a bleak future with no job in a strange city. Strong-minded and independent, she secures employment in a grocer's shop, where her aptitude for selling and her beauty capture the attention of the shop's owner, Stanley Ellinson. Stanley's much older than Kitty - but if she married him she'd want for nothing. And the boy back home who won Kitty's heart has already betrayed her...

Warm-hearted, and brimming with nostalgia, FAR FROM HOME brings vividly to life the streets of old Liverpool and of Ireland at a tumultuous time. And its heart is Kitty Doyle's determination to fulfil a dream she shares with us all: of having a home she can call her own.
