Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Helen grew up in a pit village in Tyneside in the post-war years, with her gran, aunties and uncles living nearby. She felt safe with them, but they couldn't protect her from her neglectful mother and violent father. Blamed for everything that went wrong in their lives, she suffered years of abuse. Jenny was adopted at six weeks old and grew up in Newcastle. An only child, she knew she was loved and with the support of her parents she became a champion golfer. But she still felt that something was missing. Neither knew of the other's existence until Jenny went looking for her birth family and found her sister Helen. Together they searched for the truth of Jenny's birth - and uncovered a legacy of secrets and lies that overturned everything Helen thought she knew about her family.
