Product Description

A heartbreaking tale of love and loss in a time of war, perfect for fans of Katie Flynn and Annie Groves.

Jenny O’Leary is devastated one morning in 1940 when she receives a telegram giving her the dreadful news that one of her brothers has been killed in action. Grief threatens to engulf her, but as an ARP warden, tending to Birmingham’s injured after the nightly raids, she is well-used to the suffering that thousands are enduring every day.

Linda Prosser is just twelve years old and desperately close to her mother and two tiny brothers. As the bombs drop around them one fateful night, Linda takes a risk which has disastrous consequences. Terrified, and buried beneath a mass of debris after her home takes a direct hit, it is Jenny who crawls through the wreckage of the house to rescue her.

So begins a friendship which is last through the years. But when Linda falls in love with a man that Jenny despises, she is faced with sacrificing her future happiness for the friend who has given her everything…

More About the Author

Hi, my 18th novel 'A Girl Can Dream' was published by Harper Collins and released on 22nd May 2014. I began writing in 1995 when I was no longer able to teach, because writing was something I'd always longed to do. So I wrote 4 books for children, numerous short stories and a thriller before I found my niche as a saga writer and my first book, "A Little Learning" was accepted in 1997 by Headline Publishing. In 2001 I changed publishers and "Walking Back to Happiness" was published by Harper Collins and since then I have been producing a book for them every nine months.Details of all my books are on my web site Check it out and get in touch if you'd like to. I would love to hear from you..

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Really pleased with all my orders as I live in Canada and have them sent to my 84 year old aunt in Scotland. Service has been great any any used books that I have bought for her she says they all look like brand new books. She has read every Anne Bennett book that has been released. Would highly recommend Anne Bennett books as my aunt loves them.

originally published in 1999, despite the author telling us this is her 24th book it is actually her third but worth a read if you didn't read it the first time around.

Enjoyed this book very much. The characters were believable and it was good to read about the war. Two women stuck together for the rest of their lives. A must read.
