Summary

Liverpool, 1936. Molly Penelope Hardwick has been abandoned in Haisborough Orphanage. Desperate to discover her background, she befriends another orphan, Lenny Smith.

Together they sneak out to roam the city of Liverpool, and hatch plans for their escape. But when Molly is forced to leave the orphanage, Lenny has no idea where she’s gone. And when war is declared, he soon forgets about his childhood best pal to focus on his posting with the RAF in Scrimpton.

What Lenny doesn’t know is that Molly is desperate to join the war effort, and with her sights set on joining the WAAF, chances are they will see each other again. But will things ever be the same after all this time?

An easy, and pleasant listen

I'd recommend this to other Katie Flynn fans, it has a different feel to it around mid way, but after this I found it better. And overall it was a nicely told story, easy listening, wartime setting, with likeable main character, tho I had wished they had kept a certain other character in it more when finishing the story. Anne Dover's narration is always brilliant.
