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

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.

Disappointed

I enjoyed the story but the narrator spoiled it as her pronunciation of certain words and names was different from the girl with no name.

Didn’t feel finished

I enjoyed the book, it had many good twists and turns but it did feel very unfinished, the ending seemed rushed and random, the sorry of harry felt a bit unfinished too. It was good and at times very sad but I really hated one of the characters and hoped they would get some karma but they ended up getting away with it which was frustrating too, I would recommend it but hope there might be another book?

I LOVED this continuation of The Girl With No Name

As with The Girl With No Name, I'm at a loss now that the story has ended and sad that we don't find out what happens next, I do hope the author writes another.

I enjoyed this glimpse back into the past and felt quite connected to the characters being brought to tears at times and feeling quite criss cross at others.
