Friends Forever : It's a glorious summer morning in 1928 when Bernie O'Sullivan and Molly Keegan catch their first glimpse of the bustling city they're about to call home. Both seventeen, and best friends since childhood, the girls have left Ireland behind to seek work and an exciting new life in Liverpool. The girls are dismayed to discover that the relatives they are to stay with have barely two pennies to rub together; the promised grand house is a run-down building in one of Liverpool's worst slum areas. Desperate to escape the filthy streets, Bernie secures a position as a domestic servant, while Molly is taken on as a shop assistant in a smart department store. Soon they have settled in new rooms, where admirers are drawn to them like bees to a honeypot. For both, though, love holds surprises and the danger of ruin in an unforgiving world.
