Third reprint hardback of LIVERPOOL DAISY by Helen Forrester and published by Robert Hale Limited in 1988. First published under the name of June Bhatia in 1979.

The book is in very good condition (clean black boards and bright gold lettering on spine) with some minor wear to the dust jacket, which is price clipped (light rubbing to edges, light bumping to corners, nothing of much significance). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions.

Only Depression-shrouded Liverpool could spawn a big, tough, loving character like Daisy Gallagher. Passionate in her loves and hatreds, she is the Nan of her poverty-stricken family and devoted friend of Nellie O'Brien, who is dying from lack of medical attention. She is always desperate for money.

One dark night, she is cornered by three drunken sailors who find her buxom figure, wrapped in a black shawl, comfortably attractive. From fear, she yields herself to them and, laughing, they pay her, and she realises how she can earn a living.

Fighting competition, weeping at her own suffering, laughing with her clients, she becomes the toast of the waterfront and earns enough to buy medical attention for her friend.

She manages to hide her occupation from her family, but when her stoker husband returns from sea she realises, terror-stricken, that the moment of truth has arrived.

254 pages.
