Publisher's Synopsis

Ghost Children is a compassionate and gritty examination of love and loss from one of Britain's most-loved writers, Sue Townsend

How can she leave the past behind when he won't let her?

Seventeen years ago Angela Carr aborted an unwanted child. The child's father, Christopher Moore, was devastated by the loss and he retreated from the world. Unable to accept what had happened between them both went their separate ways.

However, when Christopher makes a horrifying discovery whilst out walking his dog on the heath he finds that he is compelled to confront Angela about the past. As they start seeing each another again can they avoid the mistakes of the past? And will their future together be eclipsed by those mistakes of yesterday?
