Summary

Jean Fullerton, queen of the East End saga, returns with a charming new wartime series. 

It's 1939, and the Brogan family of London's East End are ready to show Hitler what for. But things don't seem so rosy when rationing, evacuation and air raids start to put this larger-than-life family to the test. 

When a mysterious young man arrives at the Brogans' local parish church, he provides just the dazzling distraction they need - and, for eldest daughter Mattie, the promise of more than she'd ever wished for. But as the pair fall deeper in love, they are drawn into secret dangers, rife on the very London streets they call home. 

As the young couple race to protect the East End as they know it, can their dreams survive the darkening backdrop of wartime?

Lovely read

This book is a lovely read with a good and at times exciting story line. The author has obviously done her research on this era and it really shows us how hard life could be during the war.
The performance was good, but some of the voices she chose to were annoying and didn’t seem to be how I imagined the characters to sound like. But overall a good performance and it doesn’t put you off the story .
Worth a listen.
