Book Description

19 Jan 2012 Beach View Boarding House (Book 2)

It is 1940 and Staff Nurse Polly Brown has been granted a posting at Cliffehaven Memorial Hospital on the south coast to be near her badly injured husband, Adam. But her decision has meant that she has

had to part with their beloved five-year-old daughter, Alice, who is travelling to safety in Canada.

Polly's heart is torn in two as she says goodbye to Alice and heads to the Beach View boarding house in Cliffehaven, where she throws herself into her work.

But as she confronts the fact that Adam may not survive his injuries, a telegram arrives at Beach View. The boat Alice was on has been torpedoed by a German U-boat...

5.0 out of 5 stars Super 28 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback
Having enjoyed Ellie Dean's first book, There'll Be Blue Skies' I was really looking forward to the follow up. I was not disappointed, the characters are so well drawn that you can imagine yourself as a fly on the wall and Ellie provides the perfect blend of drama, tragedy and humour that we have come to associate with Britain at war.An easy read but a most enjoyable one - I can't wait to catch up with the Reilly family in the next installment.

5.0 out of 5 stars More please! 24 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback
I was so sad to hear of the death of Annie Groves and was looking for an author in a similar vein who writes strong female characters and who does their homework regarding the home front during WW2.

I wasn't disappointed (although I do wish that the publishers would do a little research on the uniforms and styling of WW2..the cover photo is dire!)and I do hope it's not the last we hear from Beach View guesthouse and it's residents.

I think Ellie Dean has a very nice writing style, and captures the spirit of the era beautifully.

By Petra "I love to read" TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Far From Home by Ellie Dean is the second book in the series and once again we are brought into the life of Peggy Riley and her family, not forgetting the waif and strays she has a habit of giving shelter to in her boarding house which she inherited from her parents.
Within this book the main characters include Polly who has to say goodbye to her darling daughter Alice, as her mother and sister is taking Alice along with her cousins to safety in Canada for the duration of the war. There is also a Polish girl, sister of Alex who we met in the last book who was killed in action her name is Danuta a girl with so many hidden qualities but she soon shows what she is truly capable of. Danuta is like no other girl at that age she has seen things that no-one should ever have to experience but she has faced the tragedies in war torn Poland and many other countries as she fled from the Nazi's. But as always we are given enough background information about the characters therefore it is impossible to stop reading until I get to the last page to see what happens to each of the occupants of Beach View.
Why I love Ellie Dean as an author she has a gift of showing the readers the scenes she paints using words, as a reader I can see through her words what the devastation and heartache people faced in a daily way throughout the Second World War. She also has a gift of giving us characters which will touch the reader so much that personally for me I cannot wait until I get the next book for myself to see what is happening within the walls of Beach View Boarding House.

I brought this book not realizing that it was the second in a series of beach view so when I started to read it I began to recognise some of the character's.
It's a really good book once I started I didn't want to put it down.
The story's brilliant and made me cry at times.
I'm just about to buy the third book so can't wait to carry on with the story.
