You’ve Got A Friend
Families are so complicated! Molly’s dad seems so lonely. He lives on his own, he won’t get a pet, he doesn’t get on with his brother … Best friends Molly and Beth suspect his problems lie in his past, but what can two thirteen-year-olds do about that? Well, when they have a time-travelling door, maybe they CAN do something. The girls go back to 1975 hoping to right some wrongs – if they can navigate 1970s cars, food and boybands – and if the colourful fashions don’t blind them first! A heart-warming story of sticking with your friends and hanging on to your dreams!
Lily at Lissadell

Lily is going into service in the Big House – Lissadell. Lily’s employers, the Gore-Booth family, are kind, but life as a young housemaid can be hard: Lily works long days, she has to learn to get along with the staff, particularly her roommate, the sullen and uncommunicative Nellie, and she misses her home and family. But when Maeve, daughter of Constance Markievicz and niece of the Gore-Booths, comes to visit and decides to paint a portrait of Lily an unusual friendship begins between the two girls from such different worlds. A warm and engaging story about friendship, life in the early 20th century and how the political world affects everyone.
