Summary

Maureen Jackson is a prisoner of her father's blackmail. Three years ago, she'd been hoping to marry Rory, the man of her dreams. However, after her mother's death, Maureen was left to care for her overbearing father. Now Rory is back in London with his pregnant wife and reminds Maureen of the life that should have been hers.

With the war looming, Janet Ashley hopes to marry her sweetheart Mike, but her father refuses to grant them his blessing. Janet finds herself pregnant and her mother Peggy is determined to hold her family together.

Love this book

I love this book, another success for Rosie Clarke. Narrator was very good too. I always feel like I really get into knowing the charectors & the life back then when people seemed to have pulled together. I only wish the story had been longer......is there a following book? ....Please!

Comfy slippers listening!

I did enjoy this book but it's in a similar vein to a lot of others out now, so not hugely memorable as books go. The story was well crafted and the reader is easy to listen to. I might get the others in the series but they won't be a priority.

Lovely wartime novel

Book 1 of the "Mulberry Lane" series brings us the lives, loves and losses of the residents as WW2 begins. Sadly, book 2 "A wedding in Mulberry Lane" is not available in audio book so I am unable to finish the series. Superbly narrated by Susie Riddell, highly recommended!

All-around outstanding!

I really loved this book. The story was insightful, sometimes sad, sometimes funny, and always riveting. The narrator does an excellent job with quite a diverse cast of characters. I really hope that Audible makes the rest of the series available. Five stars and two thumbs up!

nice story

loved the story. the narrator was very good, at least until she did the voice of the American! i had to laugh, it sounded like she had watched to many old westerns! plus she made the 16 year old boy sound like he was six! other than that i cant wait to listen to the rest of the series!
