Praise for Home for Christmas:

‘Read with a mince pie in hand’ The Sun

Praise for Annie Groves:

‘An engrossing story’ My Weekly

‘A stirring and heartrending family saga…Against a backdrop of change when the suffragette movement was coming to the fore, the choices and dreams of a generation of women combine to create this passionate story’ Liverpool Daily Post

‘Heartwrenching and uplifting in equal measure – a tragic indictment of what can happen when you swap passion for duty. Roll on the sequel!’ Take a Break

‘Written from the heart’ My Weekly

Product Description

Home for Christmas is a tale of four very different young women thrown together by war. Finding freedom and independence – as well as love, passion and heartbreak – for the very first time, a unique bond is formed as the hostilities take their toll on Britain.

It's September 1940 and the German blitz on London has just begun. The four young girls who live at No. 13 Article Row live under its constant threat. But life must go on…

Tilly and Sally both work at Barts Hospital where they witness the cruelty of war first-hand.

Agnes volunteers to work extra hours at her underground station to help with the nightly influx of people seeking safety from the bombs.

Dulcie, with her broken ankle, tries to make peace with her mother, following the news of the death of her sister Enid. But her grief-stricken mother doesn't want to know.

Sally returns to her painful past in Liverpool. But it's not seeing the man she once loved, nor her father and ex-best friend's child that hurt most…

As Christmas approaches, the arrival of the handsome young American Drew, ignites new life in the heart Tilly thought was broken.

As the bombs continue to rain down on a frosty London, perilous challenges lay around every corner. And all anyone wants this year is to be home for Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Series 22 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love Annie Groves novels, and this latest series, this is the second in the set, are such a wonderful read. The characters are amazing, their stories keep you engrossed, and I for one could not put this book down. I shed tears of sadness, tears of happiness, and I cannot wait for the next book due out in February.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Fine Installment from Article Row 30 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I managed to read this book in two sittings I enjoyed it that much. I found that I got to know the characters a bit better and watch them adjust during times that were indescribable.

You also watch them meet people that they start to care about and read about the impact the war has on their relationships. This book also covers The Battle of Britain, The Blitz and the introduction of rationing.

This book finishes at Christmas 1940 and I am looking forward to reading the next installment to find out what happens to these lovely characters and their boyfriends.

If you enjoyed London Belles you will enjoy this book

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely festive reading. 6 Dec 2011
I was so desperate to find out what happened to the girls after London Belles and this didn't disappoint. Well researched, the characters are really growing and 'fleshing out' a bit. It really was like meeting old friends again.
Highly reccomended, can't wait for the next installment!

Another great read from Annie Groves. Her story telling is addictive and once I start one of her books, I find it hard to put my kindle down. I do read other authors in between but can't wait to start another Annie Groves one!

4.0 out of 5 stars War romance a nice easy read 17 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Took a little longer to get into this one than it did with the prequel and while it was interesting and entertaining, I felt it could have been better edited as poor punctuation and grammar leaves one feeling that this book was perhaps rushed out hot on the heels of the one before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read 13 Mar 2014
By Claire
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One of five in the series, have now read them all.
Storyline is excellent & the writers must have done extensive research in order to cover some of the aspects.
I was glad that I had all 5 books to read at once because it was difficult to put any one of the books down.
Highly recommended.
