Summary

The highly anticipated sequel to The Girl with No Name, a heart-warming family saga from bestselling author, Diney Costeloe.

The war is over, but trouble is brewing....

Wynsdown, 1949. In the small Somerset village of Wynsdown, Charlotte Shepherd is happily married and now feels settled in her adopted home after arriving from Germany on the Kindertransport as a child during the war.

Meanwhile, the squire's fighter pilot son, Felix, has returned to the village with a fiancée in tow. Daphne is beautiful, charming...and harbouring secrets. After meeting during the war, Felix knows some of Daphne's past, but she has worked hard to conceal one that could unravel her carefully built life.

For Charlotte, too, a dangerous past is coming back in the shape of fellow refugee, bad boy Harry Black. Forever bound by their childhoods, Charlotte will always care for him, but Harry's return disrupts the village quiet and it's not long before gossip spreads.

The war may have ended, but for these girls, trouble is only just beginning.

Couldn't finish it

I loved the first book in this series but I found this one incredibly dull and missing all the charm of the first. Didn't finish it

One hell of a disappointment

Having listened to and thoroughly enjoyed “the girl with no name”, I could not wait to get started on the sequel, Married Girls. I cannot believe that both books were written by the same author! I listened and listened and listened and finally gave up on on this book. First of all, it is a real shame that the same narrator was not used for both books. The masculine “voices” in this book were risible! The narration was not a patch on its predecessor. But most important of all, the story was beyond boring. I can always tell when an audiobook is good because I don’t fall asleep to it LOL. With this book I could not stay awake! The storyline is bland, insipid and BORING. Because I enjoyed the first book so much I stuck with this until I just could take no more. What a disappointment!

The chronicles continue

Another great continuation from the girl with no name.

This book has great characters, it is set in post war England and has good story lines.
It reminds me slightly of the Clifton chronicles by Jeffrey Archer.
This book can be read in its own but is better read as the second book in the series.
I will look forward to the next instalment.

Enjoyed the plot.

Really enjoyed the story but a rather strange ending.
Is there a follow up I wonder.

Good book, but not sure about title!

A book with many characters and many twists and turns. I couldn't stop listening, which is always a good sign. Didn't like some of the story line involving two characters but the rest was good.

Not that gripping a story line.

I was a little disappointed to the story line after reading the reviews, I think some people have rated this book too high and I think I've been generous to give it 3 stars.
