But her grief-stricken mother doesn't want to know.Sally returns to her painful past in Liverpool. But it's not seeing the man she once loved, nor her father and ex-best fiend's child that hurt most...As Christmas approaches, the arrival of the handsome young American Drew, ignites new life in the heart Tilly thought was broken.As the bombs continue to rain down on a frosty London, perilous challenges lay around every corner. And all anyone wants this year is to be home for Christmas.

But shame it wasn't the same narrater as the previous book. Dulcie the East end girl that works at Selfridges and always tried to sound posh now sounds like a fish wife. The New Zealand accent was also not evident, all important things when trying to create an image of the characters from an audio book.
