Summary

Pearl Street, Liverpool, Christmas 1942. Despite the drama and tragedy of the War, the street’s spirit and friendship in adversity binds them together. Since her husband was injured, Eileen has worried about the growing distance between them. Lena Newton longs for a baby but with her husband posted in the Navy, it's looking unlikely. And Kitty has hidden away since she discovered her lover was married, too ashamed to return in disgrace with her baby.

Great book ruined by the ending.

This book is mostly excellent with interesting characters and very well narrated. Unfortunately I wish I'd stopped listening with 30 minutes to go. The ending completely ruined it.

First but not the last

This is the first Maureen Lee book I've listened to but it definitely won't be the last.
I love how the characters lives were interweaved so well.

Not this authors best

This book is a fine, easy story cut from the same cloth, as it were, from several of this authors other books. If ur a fan of the author, u'll like it, if u haven't read any others, read Pearl....
