The 20th Anniversary Edition of Number One bestseller Maureen Lee's LIGHTS OUT LIVERPOOL - the first of the Pearl Street series.

'With her talent for storytelling, queen of saga-writing Maureen Lee weaves intrigue, love and warmth into every page' My Weekly
As Britain stands alone against a monstrous enemy, the inhabitants of Pearl Street, in Liverpool, face hardship and heartbreak with courage and humour.
The war touches each of them in a different way: for Annie Poulson, a widow, it means never-ending worry when her twin boys are called up and sent to France; Sheila Reilly's husband, Cal, faces the terror of U-Boat attacks; Eileen Costello is liberated from a bitter, loveless marriage when her husband is sent to Egypt and she goes to work in a munitions factory - and falls in love. And Jessica Fleming, down on her luck, is forced to return to the street she'd hoped never to see again.
Maureen Lee was born in Liverpool and had numerous short stories published and a play professionally staged before her first novel was published. Her award-winning novels earned her many fans and she was a regular SUNDAY TIMES top ten bestseller. Her novel DANCING IN THE DARK won the RNA Award. Maureen Lee lived in Colchester with her family until she passed away in 2020.
