Summary

In Rita Bradshaw's Beneath a Frosty Moon, it’s 1940, and Britain is at war with Germany. For Cora Stubbs and her younger siblings this means being evacuated to the safety of the English countryside. But little does Cora know that Hitler’s bombs are nothing compared to the danger she will face in her new home, and she is forced to grow up fast.

However, Cora is a fighter, and she strives to carve out a new life for herself and her siblings. Time passes, and in the midst of grief and loss she falls in love, but what other tragedies lie around the corner?

As womanhood beckons, can Cora ever escape her troubled past and the lost love who continues to haunt her dreams and cast shadows over her days?

Heartwarming

I have read all Rita Bradshaw novels, and this was my first on audio book. I live in Sunderland and love to hear the local places mentioned in all the books. I was handed my first Rita Bradshaw book by my late grandmother, and once read we loved to talk of the characters and all the stories. This one as always was a treat, strong female character and a heartwarming ending. Brings fond and endearing memories, of something me and my late grandmother shared. Thank you Rita Bradshaw.

Awesome!

I loved this book so much I couldn’t stop listening. It was a lovely story and narrated perfectly by Julia Barrie. I think Rita Bradshaw gets the waiting... just right. Some books go on and you just need the conclusion or the inevitable to happen. Not this one, though I did find myself raising my voice to Alexa sometimes! All in all a great listen, Thank you
