The third novel in bestseller Maureen Lee's outstanding Liverpool sequence about family life during World War II
Two years of war have taken a terrible toll on Pearl Street, Liverpool. German bombs have reduced some houses to rubble and most of the inhabitants have lost friends and family. While sisters Eileen and Sheila share the anxious burden of absent husbands, the conflict for others brings excitement and freedom. Kitty Quigley, stuck at home for years with an invalid father, is forced to register for war work and is delighted to become an auxiliary nurse. And Jessica Fleming, struggling to earn a living, finds herself and her friend Rita increasingly drawn to the glamour and excitement of the Yanks.
Maureen Lee once again confirms her talent as a wonderful storyteller, weaving together the lives of a Liverpool community in the Second World War.
