The Doorstep Child by Annie Murray
From a tender age little Evie struggled . . .
Evie spent her early years left outside on the step. With a drunk for a father and a neglectful mother, all little Evie has ever craved is a safe home and a normal existence.
Her young eyes had seen so much but this never tainted her spirit. If it wasn't for her best friend Gary, and friendly dog called Whisky, Evie might never have made it to her sixteenth birthday.
At sixteen she meets Ken, a sweet, brown-eyed boy, not much older than she is. Perhaps her fortunes have changed? But as soon as she gives over her heart she is betrayed, not for the first time in her young life . . .
Will Evie ever find the love and warmth she's always craved?
