Book Description

3 Sep 1998 The Adams Family (Book 13)

The war is only into its second year, but already it has claimed one victim from the Adams family. Emily, Boots’s cherished wife, has died in an air-raid,and the whole family mourns her. But for Polly Simms the prospect of a new life dawns, while the members of the younger generation who are in uniform, and doing their bit for King and Country, have their own problems to contend with. Tim has been posted to Scotland, to train as a Commando, and has met the lovely young officer Felicity; Eloise, now a sergeant in the ATS, is enjoying her new job as driver to the formidable Major Lucas. And has Rosie, now commissioned, lost her heart at last?

The Blitz all but destroys the factory in Shoreditch, but Sammy and Tommy Adams manage to find some alternative accommodation. And love is in the air - for young and old alike - as the Adams family refuse to let Hitler get the better of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Life-like. 21 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Staples portrayal of life in old Walworth is very accurate and he certainly 'knows his stuff' about the neighbourhood. East Street Market comes to life vividly as does his knowledge of the geography of this area. Characters are slightly feeble.
