Book Description

1 Aug 2013

A few days before Christmas Tess Williams rushes into Albert Payne's tobacconist shop, with two boys in hot pursuit, saying she's a thief. Albert chases the boys away, and though Tess does not realise it, this incident changes her life.

Tess lives with her grandmother, Edie, in a small flat on Heyworth Street. She has recently returned from Bell Farm, where she was evacuated during the war, and is being bullied by her schoolmates, but when the handsome Snowy White comes to her rescue she thinks her troubles are over, and returns for a working holiday to Bell Farm and her old friend Jonty.

This leaves Edie to her own devices, however, and Tess is jealous of the friendship which blossoms between her grandmother and the tobacconist. Yet though Tess resents Albert, it is to him she turns when things start to go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Just for Christmas! 12 Dec 2013
By Corazie
Format:Paperback
I loved this. I loved this and it's sparkly cover. Yes, sparkles!

When I see books by Katie Flynn, and indeed other authors of the romantic-saga-type genre, I think Oh, I know what I'm in for. These are the books I turn to when I need something which will make my heart swell and put a huge smile on my face. But boy, this was different. Right from the first pages I knew that although it would still most likely follow the usual formula, there was something which wouldn't.

And that was the main character, Tess.

This book read a little like a young adult and I seriously enjoyed it. Tess is a young adult herself and this follows her tough journey through post-evacuation life living with her only relative, her gran. We see her try to figure out who she loves, we see her grow up and we see her realise that she was a little selfish at times and work to rectify that.

There are twists and turns and oh-my-gosh moments all through this, and although the ending was a little fast for me, I will certainly read this again.

No matter your age, I think you'll enjoy this. This book is so much more than the genre it's in, and it's a book for everyone to enjoy. This is a book for all times of the year, not just Christmas, despite what the cover implies - I would have been just as comfortable and content reading this in the height of summer!

3.0 out of 5 stars a Christmas to remember. 10 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Katie Flynn for a long time. her earlier works were excellent. I love books set in Liverpool because I
can relate to places & the characters are so real.I think that Her writing is not up to her usual style. She does a lot of waffling
which isn't necessary.

long predictable story
some facts hard to believe . A visit to Kings Lynn Market in the 40s from Norwich would have taken all dynamic

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice read! 12 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Am still reading this book and quite enjoying it, but have noted that the author refers to sweet rationing still being in place, so the year must be no later than 1953, when it ended. However, she also mentions Liverpool jokingly being referred to as the 'Capitol of Wales, as Cardiff is such a long way off!' Cardiff did not officially become the Capitol until 1955, so perhaps I'm nitpicking, or perhaps it's because I'm Welsh...but I like facts to be right!!
