Tomorrow's Tide

Tomorrow's Tide

Published by St Martin's Press and Piatkus, 1996

In 1910 young teenager Jennifer Owen discovers an abandoned baby in a field, wrapped up with a penny for luck. [In fact, I wanted to call the book A Penny Child.] Years later, with the help of society hostess Millicent Colston-Smart, she decides to track the child down. The trail leads to some startling discoveries for all concerned ... and a completely new career for Jennifer.
