Summary

As Britain stands alone against a monstrous enemy, the inhabitants of Pearl Street face hardship and heartbreak with courage and humour. The war touches each of them in a different way: for Annie Poulson, a widow, it means never-ending worry when her twin boys are called up and sent to France; Sheila Reilly's husband, Cal, faces the terror of U-Boat attacks; Eileen Costello is liberated from a bitter, loveless marriage when her husband is sent to Egypt and she goes to work in a munitions factory - and falls in love. And Jessica Fleming, down on her luck, is forced to return to the street she'd hoped never to see again.

An Old Scouse Street Comes Alive Again

One really gets to know the characters. It's like one is there, on Pearl Street, in Bootle before the Blitz.

Wonderful

Maureen Lee took you right back there and very well researched, wonderful writing and story, like real life not just mushy and contrived romance, I thoroughly enjoyed

Romance?

I was expecting a WW 2 Romance since it was in the Romance package. That isn't what i got. Instead it was a historical (fiction) story about several people and their families. It was more descriptive of these people and what happened to them during the war years. If it weren't fiction, I would have called it a documentary type book. Since it wasn't what expected or wanted I didn't finish the book. I might have enjoyed it IF it was what I wanted. However, I expected a WW 2 romance and couldn't enjoy this book.
