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.

Not a narrative structure as you know it

I kept waiting for the build up and climax of the story - there isn't one!

Wouldn’t recommend

The story does seem to go anywhere, then the book just ends. I expect this I due to several in a series

A very enjoyable listen.

I have listened to this after listening to the Harper’s series. Several similarities to that series in the characters but still very enjoyable and excellent narration (especially after listening to the annoying narrator of the last 3 Harpers books). Thank you.

Enchanting

A few day ago I listened to Stormy days I didn't realise until it was ended that it was book 7. Anyway now I'm starting from the beginning & what a difference a good narrator makes, Susie Riddell was a pleasure to listen and apart from book 7 (which I know Polly Edsell did & I've already wrote my review on that) I hope Susie narrates all 6 of these wonderful books.

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!
