Today I am delighted to be joining the blog tour for the new release – A Ration Book Victory by Jean Fullerton

My Review

I have loved reading about the Brogan family and this visit was no exception, throughout this saga we have learnt snippets about the matriarch of the family Queenie and we get to learn more about her life before she came to London as she has to decide whether to tell her family something that could change them forever.

As the end of the war approaches we spend time with all of the Brogan children and get to see how their lives have changed throughout the course of the war, we see their joys and challenges as they prepare for life post war.

I absolutely love historical fiction and saga’s based in London during WWII are my absolute favourite. The Brogan family have felt like family and I have loved getting to know these wonderful characters and will miss them as we conclude the final book in the series.

Book Blurb

Jean Fullerton, the RNA-shortlisted queen of the East End, returns with the final nostalgic and heart-warming story of the Brogan family.
_____

In the final days of war, only love will pull her through . . .

Queenie Brogan wasn’t always an East End matriarch. Many years ago, before she married Fergus, she was Philomena Dooley, a daughter of Irish Travellers, planning to wed her childhood sweetheart, Patrick Mahone. But when tragedy struck and Patrick’s narrow-minded sister, Nora, intervened, the lovers were torn apart.

Fate can be cruel, and when Queenie arrives in London she finds that Patrick Mahon is her parish priest, and that the love she had tried to suppress flares again in her heart.

But now in the final months of WW2, Queenie discovers Father Mahon is dying and must face losing him forever. Can she finally tell him the secret she has kept for over fifty years or will Nora once again come between them?

And if Queenie does decide to finally tell Patrick, could the truth destroy the Brogan family?

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
