When I first held you / Anstey Harris.

Harris, Anstey, (author.).


"In 1960s Glasgow, anti-nuclear activists Judith and Jimmy fall in love. But their future hopes are dashed when their protestors' squat is raided and many, including Jimmy, are sent to prison. Pregnant and with no word from Jimmy, Judith is forced to enter an unmarried mothers' home, give up their baby and learn to live with her grief. More than half a century later, Judith's Mending Shop restores broken treasures, just as Judith herself has been bound back together by her late, much-missed partner, Catherine. But her tranquillity is shattered when Jimmy--so different and yet somehow the same--reappears, yearning to unpick the painful past. Realising they each know only half of the other's story, Jimmy and Judith finally break the silence that tore apart what might have been their family. Amid heartbreak and hope, how much can now be mended?"-- Provided by publisher.
