"Oh Danny Boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling..." Annie sang quietly, holding Derek's baby blue cardigan and trying to detect a familiar smell. The same cardigan he was supposed to wear at his christening. Annie and her friends leave Ireland in 1926 young and optimistic, hoping to find a better life in Liverpool. Only things do not turn out the way they had imagined. Annie falls in love, marries and starts a family of her own. But with the onset of World War Two comes tragedy and loss, testing Annie's strength to the limit. Little does she realise that the salvation of her loved ones lies partly with a German woman named Hilde, whose life and situation mirrors Annie's own. 'Liverpool Connection' is the second book of a trilogy and is based on a true story. The first book, 'The Night I Danced with Rommel', tells Hilde's story. The books are historical novels based on facts and tell the writer's family history.
