Rosie Harris - Patsy of Paradise Place, Looking for Love
Patsy of Paradise Place: It's a whole new kind of life for Patsy Callaghan when her father realises that her mother, Maeve, is neglecting her and stops going to sea. John Callaghan buys a horse and cart and sets up as a carrier at Liverpool Docks. Patsy likes nothing better than going out in the cart with him and Billy Grant, the boy who helps him. When John Callaghan is killed in an accident and Maeve returns to her drinking binges, Billy, who is in love with Patsy, helps her to keep the business going. But Patsy is madly in love with Bruno Alvarez, a fairground showman and believes that he is going to marry her. She brings him home on her 16th birthday to meet Maeve. He stays the night and next morning Patsy finds them in bed together. Heartbroken, she takes refuge in the stables. Billy finds her and comforts her and they end up making love. When Maeve finds out that Patsy is eight month's pregnant, she throws her out. Patsy hides out in the stables and Billy looks after her when the baby, Liam, is born there. She is still in hiding when Billy meets with an accident and is left crippled. Unable to find Bruno and tell him about the baby she stays with Billy's family. When Liam is old enough to be left with them, Patsy trains as a nurse. Liam develops TB so Patsy makes a final attempt to find Bruno only to discover that he and her mother went off together. Liam dies and once more Patsy's world collapses. Billy is there to comfort her and she realises how much she loves him and that their future is together...

Looking for Love: Pretty and vivacious, Abbie Martin has grown up in squalor in a house off Scotland Road, one of Liverpool's poorest and most deprived areas. Abbie, the youngest of three children, longs to be loved and cosseted by her mother, Ellen. But Ellen cannot provide the love that Abbie needs. A drunk, she spends her weekends and evenings drinking with her eldest son, Billy, while Abbie and Sam huddle together under the stairs or take refuge with their next door neighbours, the Lewises. They become close friends with their children, Sandra and Peter. Abbie is jealous of the love that is bestowed on Sandra by Mrs Lewis and vows that one day she will leave Scotland Road, and Sam and Peter promise to come with her. Abbie grows up, and although she is vibrant and attractive, she pushes people away with her constant need for reassurance. Infatuated with Peter, she longs for the day when he tells her that he loves her. Sam, on the other hand, is courting Sandra, who falls pregnant. But Peter and Sandra have a secret - one that will destroy the friends' relationship should it become known. It's through her love of dance that provides Abbie with an escape. It's also through dance that she meets the dashing police constable Bradley Fisher, who falls in love with her. Has Abbie finally found the security and affection that she has been searching for all her life, or will she always be looking for love?...
