How long can you keep a secret? Seventeen-year-old Mimi finds a tiny baby hidden in the family guest house. There’s only one answer to this startling discovery—her rebellious sister, Attie. Their parents are recently divorced, their mother suffering from depression, and Attie definitely can’t be relied on to care for an infant. Mimi decides to take care of the child. But how long can she keep a baby hidden? This secret promises to divide two sisters—if it doesn’t destroy them first!
The Hastie Girls, a coming-of-age book, is the first installment of a two-part series. Set in the 1950s, within the confines of sheltered English village life, Emily only yearned for a small-town romance, and Belle sought adventure with aspirations to be a doctor. A journey of shocking naivety to shattered dreams and where the sisters’ loyalties will be challenged.
