Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p> Lyn Andrews's engaging saga of Liverpool life in the twentieth century, A WING AND A PRAYER, is the perfect read if you love the novels of Kate Thompson and Katie Flynn. </p> <p>For Mary Callaghan marriage has brought heartaches and disappointment. But with it have come joys, the greatest of which are her daughters, Daisy and Nell. Mary longs for them to have the one thing denied to her - a husband who will offer them kindness, security and love.</p> <p>But when Daisy confesses she's pregnant, the future looks grim, for the father's a rough, pleasure-loving man. As Nell watches her sister sink into bitter poverty, and as the world around her grows more uncertain, with war more likely by the day, risking all for love seems to Nell a foolish game...</p>

Mary wants her girls to have what she never had - the security and love her hard-drinking Jack denied her. But Daisy, her daughter, falls pregnant by rough Sam O'Grady and sinks into bitter poverty. As war looms her sister Nell despairs of ever finding love.
