Summary
It's London 1943, and war and dwindling resources are taking their toll on the staff of Partridge Press. The Ministry of Information has published The Battle of Britain, and everyone needs more books to read in the shelters, at home and for the troops. The pressure is on to create new books to distract readers from the grim realities of the war, but Partridge's rising star, Alice Cotton, leaves abruptly and cannot be found. Alice's forced absence is to birth a child and although Alice won't reveal the identity of her baby's father, Alice's mother promises to help her raise the child. Instead, she decides to secretly give away her tiny granddaughter, Eadie. With the police unable to help, Alice's search takes her from the offices of child welfare organisations and newspapers, to dangerous places as she looks for the infamous baby farmers who thrive in the changing conditions that war has created. As Alice looks ever more desperately for her daughter, and the identity of Eadie's father is finally revealed, she is placed in danger and quick action is necessary to help save Alice and Eadie. Finding Eadie is a surprising love story about a woman's search for her stolen child. Inspired by real events during the Second World War, it's also a story about the triumph of three friendships bound by hope, love, secrets and the belief that books have the power to change lives
