I love war time historical fiction and loved that this was set between the country and London as we meet Tom & Lizzie. Within the first few pages I loved Tom and his family and the dislike for Ralph was instant and continued to grow as I read.
After a massive misunderstanding you see Lizzie embark on her dream job in London whilst Tom is left wrestling with whether he did the right thing. Once again this story was full of strong characters and true matriarchs in the mothers we get to spend time with.
I loved the references to Harper’s as I’ve loved reading that series and found that I flew through this book as war is declared and my attachment to the characters grew.
Another superb story by one of my favourite authors when it comes to historical fiction
Cambridgeshire – March 1939
Lizzie Johnson and Tom were sweethearts until a mistake caused a terrible rift. Lizzie takes herself off to London to heal the pain in a glamorous new job but she still loves Tom. His pride has been hurt – but deep down inside Tom still cares. Can they find happiness before their chance is gone and the whole word is swept into the terrible madness of war?
