Book Description

19 Feb 1998
Thomas Packard is dead and the tensions between his grandchildren mount as to who will get the major shareholding in the store, who will be on the board, who will be chairman. Amelie fights to maintain her position whilst coping with a marriage that is far from perfect and trying to resist a strong attraction to her friend's husband. Then their world is torn apart by the declaration of war, but business must go on despite staffing difficulties. It opens up new opportunities for Amelie, who is quick to seize them, and puts ever more of her energies into her beloved Packards, but it also stiffens her brother Alec's resolve to stay firmly in control...A powerful, compelling sequel to PACKARDS that confirms Patricia Burns' wonderful storytelling talent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shopping and Shooting 28 Aug 2005
When I first saw this book I thought, 'Oh no, not another WW1 story,' but I've read a lot of this author's other books so I thought I'd give it a go. And it's not all fighting through the trenches. There's a really good picture of how a department store functioned at that time, plus, more important, a great tale of family feuds and rivalry and a heroine, Amelie, who you really want to win through. There's lots about high society and the poor souls who worked in the store and the baddie who got away with it in the previous book . . . whoops, nearly gave that away . . . let's say he does his best to get away with in it this one too.
It's a long time since we last saw a book by this author. When are we going to see a new one?

I loved Patricia Burns' other book, 'Packards' and was so thrilled to be able to continue reading about Amelie and further scenarios of the wonderful department store. Read Packards first and then straight onto this one... love them both!
