Book Description

13 Mar 1996
Neighbours Molly Bennett and Nellie McDonough are thrilled to see their children settling down. Jill and Steve are making wedding plans and Doreen waits patiently at home for Phil's next leave. But the Second World War is separating loved ones forever and the future looks bleak... Then Rosie O'Grady arrives in Liverpool from Ireland and Molly and Nellie are in for a treat. With her sparkling blue eyes and youthful charm, sweet Rosie O'Grady is like a breath of fresh air. Her direct approach to life soon has everyone crying with laughter; and Molly's son, Tommy, who used to think girls were nothing but a nuisance, is in for a pleasant surprise...

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another heartwarming book from Joan.. 5 Jan 2003
Carrying on the saga of Molly and Nellie, two extremely funny and bighearted ladies, this book will not disappoint Joan fans anywhere!
The story is based on, as you might gather from the title, Rosie, who comes to stay with Molly's mother, Bridie, and father, Bob. As soon as she sees Molly's son, Tommy, Rosie sets her cap at him and refuses to take no for an answer. Tommy is disgusted, but what happens next, when his best mate confesses his liking for her, is hilarious and very touching.
Having read every book yet in this saga, all I can say is that there is a new wedding somewhere along the line, as well as those of Jill and Doreen, Molly's eldest daughters. Oh, and fans of Nellie will love all of the tricks that she gets up to in this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to our lives Rosie O'Grady!B 28 April 2001
By A Customer
Back in time to the back streets of Liverpool in the late 30's to early 40's we go, there we meet up again with Molly Bennett and her best friend Nellie McDonough. Molly's dad is just arriving home from hospital after his heart attack to be fussed over by his ever loving wife Bridie. Afew weeks later they tell Molly that they are going to be looking after a young Irish distant relation,Molly is none to pleased as she thinks it will be much for her ma and da to cope with, but molly is to be proved to be totally wrong when she and Nellie meet Rosie O'Grady off the night boat from Ireland. Rosie turns out to be a lovely caring young girl with a heart of gold and a very large dose of humour,which she shares with everyone who meets this bonny lass. Molly's son does not take to the young girl at all as she makes a point of telling him that she's never seen such a fine figure of a man and wants to know if he has a girlfriend and if not could she fill the post, blushing furiously he hastily leaves the room and spends the next few weeks avoiding her as much as possible. A few months later an air raid throws them together and bending down together with Rosie to tuck blankets around his nan and grandads legs in the public shelter he suddenly realises how very pretty she really is and he spends the next few weeks trying to pluck the courage up to ask her out. Tommy's opportunity comes after the long awaited wedding of Corker, at the end of the day Tommy walks Rosie home and takes his courage in boths hands and askd her for a date.An absolutely brilliant book, well worth a read . I dare you to miss it.
