I was sceptical about this 1st book and was pleasantly surprised by the story and characters within.
What spoilt it though was that the 6th book “Victory girls”was released 2018 before this and subsequent 4 books in 2020.
That said, I am thrilled with the stories surrounding the characters and find myself gripped unable to stop listening.
This series of lavender road reminds me of the Ellie Dean series and is very very good.
I mustn’t forget the perfect narrator Annie Aldington who brings each character to life with her amazing accents.
Helen Carey please write some more books in this series their brilliant
Highly recommended

I was unsure about this book but decided to give it a try. I’m so glad I did!!! A story about the 2nd WW resistance and Venice in a book.
I was absolutely gripped as it was about two subjects that I’m very interested in and a recent visit to Venice.
I could place all the streets and places of interest and found myself walking the path again.
Narrators were brilliant, loved the idea of two narrators which worked very well.
Very recommended

Slow start and wondering where it was going but then it started to make sense. Couldn’t stop listening and found it very gripping as pieces of the puzzle started forming.
It made me wonder if this story was true and whether this tactic had been used before with SOE during the war.
Highly recommended
