The Ghost of Lily Painter

Rating: 4 out of 5.

When Annie Sweet moves into 43 Stanley Road with her husband and daughter, she is finally content. Briefly.

It’s not long before she becomes interested in the house’s past inhabitants and her curiosity leads her to the grim world of Edwardian London’s notorious baby farmers who cared for (or more usually, didn’t) unwanted children at a price.

Davies, daughter of novelist Margaret Forster, blends fact and fiction in this engrossing novel.
