Here is a selection of books available to borrow from Bury Libraries, chosen to celebrate our carers:

A Life to Remember by Morella Kayman

life to remember

The story begins with Kathy, a carer, talking about looking after donors. She has been a carer for almost twelve years at the time of narration, and she often reminisces about her time spent at Hailsham – an idyllic establishment situated deep in the English countryside. The children there were tenderly sheltered from the outside world, brought up to believe they were special, and that their personal welfare was crucial. But for what reason were they really there?

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

Love or Duty by Rosie Harris

Liverpool, 1924. Racing to meet her fiancé in her father’s new-fangled motor car, Penny Forshaw knocks over a little girl and – much to her fiance’s disapproval – feels it her duty to take in 6-year-old Kelly while she recovers. Her decision to look after a child from the slums will change Penny’s life in ways she could never have imagined.
