Summary

A moving and nostalgic saga from Pam Evans, set in London during wartime. Perfect for listeners of Katie Flynn, Kitty Neale and Dilly Court.

It is autumn 1940 and, as the bombs rain down on London, a close-knit community struggles to survive.

Working at the local post office, Bessie Green does her best to keep her customers' spirits up, but when she receives a telegram addressed to her parents, there's nothing she can do to prevent the heartache that lies ahead.

Then Bessie hears that 11-year-old Daisy Mason has been orphaned in a blast, and she's sure that taking Daisy into their home is just what her parents need to help them overcome their grief. At first, Daisy won't settle; then her handsome brother, Josh, comes back on leave and things look up for all of them.  

But the war brings further challenges for Bessie and her friends - with more hearts broken and loved ones lost - before they can dare to dream of a brighter future....

I loved this book. The story was one I never wanted to end. Annie Aldington narrated to absolute perfection.
