Summary

Come Rain or Shine is an uplifting story of true friendship in the aftermath of World War Two, by Sunday Times best seller Pam Weaver.

1946. The war is over, but a bereft Sheila Hodges is left parentless and alone in London. With nowhere else to go, she heads to Worthing to reconnect with her grandmother and cousin Veronica, known as Ronnie.

Ronnie and Sheila are given the opportunity to run their grandfather’s business, a local garage. Ronnie’s ne’er-do-well brother Leslie is furious - as the man of the family, he believes the business is rightfully his. But their grandmother is adamant that Leslie is not to be trusted.

After serving in the ATS in the war, Sheila is a trained mechanic, while Ronnie discovers she has a talent for numbers and a shrewd business head. Despite the garage’s derelict state, the girls are determined to turn it into a prospering business.

Bright and lively, the girls quickly make themselves at home in the welcoming community, a source of comfort after the horrors of war. But when the girls stumble across a shocking family secret, they will have to depend on each other to uncover the truth....

Fast moving

At first I definitely didn’t like the narrator! It was like she was reading to a class of 5year olds! Very precise and no flow to it. The story was good so I persevered. So glad I did. Enjoyed the story immensely. Lots of things happening and very busy. After the first paragraph or two I’d got used to the narrator. I think she calmed down a bit and the dialogue flowed.
