The Liar’s Daughter by Laurie Graham, narrated by Rebecca Egan
There are questions we can never hope to answer. It doesn’t stop us asking.
Nan Prunty’s mother has always claimed to have been Lord Nelson’s lover. When she kept an alehouse in Portsmouth, she renamed it The Duchess of Prunty, the title which she claimed would have been hers had Lord Nelson lived. She saw him die at Trafalgar, or so she says. But what she says depends on how much she has had to drink.
Nan makes her own determined way in life, but is always haunted by the wish to know the truth about her father. From the ageing seamen at the Greenwich Hospital to the battlefields of the Crimea, Nan discovers the world is full of people with a story about Nelson.
