Description - Friends and Families by Margaret Kaine
Two girls - one street. Two families across a social divide.
As a child, Josie Ford, fiery and ambitious, sees from a distance the affluent lifestyle of young Georgina Hawkins, and is filled with envy. But Georgina is lonely, and longs to experience the warmth of working-class family life. Beneath the shadow of Georgina's father, the domineering William Hawkins, the two girls meet in secret. From this forbidden friendship grows a bond so strong nothing can break it.
And then the men enter their lives. Josie falls unwillingly in love with Nick. For as a market trader, surely he can't offer her the lifestyle she now craves? Georgina, an incurable romantic, falls in love with the first man she meets. But the mysterious Dominic breaks her heart. And now both girls need their friendship as never before.
