The Railway Girl

By Nancy Carson

Only tragedy can save her…

When young Lucy Piddock meets the kind and dependable Arthur Goodrich, he seems to be the perfect match. A stonemason by trade, Arthur works in his father’s Black Country business. But he lights no flame in Lucy’s heart and she wants more. Lucy dares to dream of love and holds a candle for Dickie Dempster, a debonair guard who works on the newly constructed railway.

Prompted by Lucy’s rejection, Arthur leaves home for a new life and new love in Bristol,
leaving Lucy to pursue her dream of happiness with Dickie.

Finally free to make her own choices, Lucy finds the water muddied by tragedy, and must re-examine where her heart really lies . . .
