Wood Green, North London, November 1913: The storm clouds of war gather overhead, while one brave girl fights to save her family . . . After her mother dies, Livvie Bone knows it's down to her to protect her younger siblings from their drunken father. But life on the worst street in London is dark and dangerous, and one night she needs protection herself. When the mysterious Joe Hunter steps in to help her, Livvie's fascinated by him, in spite of his unsavoury reputation. Then Livvie is offered the chance to work at the Barratt's Sweet Factory. Livvie's fragile beauty hides a formidable strength of character, and it doesn't take long for the factory manager, Lucas, to notice her. He is a sophisticated, wealthy man of the world and he can open doors to the kind of life Livvie has only dreamed of. Suddenly she has a chance to better herself - and to help her family. But time is running out, for war is approaching, sweeping everything and everyone up in its remorseless path. What life will Livvie choose - and what kind of world will be left to her when the fighting ends? Based around the WW1 female factory workers at Barratt's Sweet Factory and inspired by true stories from the author's grandmother, A Sister's Bond celebrates the everyday heroism of families who fought to survive against all odds . . .

About the Author

Kay Brellend never imagined she would become a writer, certainly not a writer of novels inspired by her own family. Kay's Campbell Road series, set in the 'worst street in London' follows the same Islington family covering the years between WW1 and WW2. The Campbell Road series of books has been an absorbing journey and she has learned much about the toughness and resilience of her ancestors: Kay feels pride in her roots in the worst street in north London. Her new series, published by Piatkus, is set in North London in 1913 and tells the stories of the families who work for Barratts Sweet Factory. It has all the heart, grit and personal connection that distinguishes her as one of the most exciting voices in the saga genre.
