A delightfully warm novel of the rebuilding of lives in Plymouth and Portsmouth after the Second World War
The War is over at last and in Plymouth and Portsmouth, two of Britain's greatest seaports, the task of rebuilding must begin. But it is not only streets, businesses and homes that have been laid waste. Lives, too, have been devastated. Marriages have been disrupted, family life shattered, and now the inhabitants must find their own way back to normality- if they can remember what that is.
br>Lucy Pengelly is justone woman who's life has been torn apart by the War. What will happen when her husband returns from the POW camp in the Far East? And what of the growing friendship between Lucy and her friend David, who played such an important part in her life during the Blitz?
Lilian Harry grew up in Gosport, on the shores of Portsmouth Harbour, and now lives on the edge of Dartmoor with two miniature schnauzers who allow her just enough room on the sofa. She is a keen bellringer and walker, and enjoys taking part in village life. Her daughter and two grandchildren live nearby.
