Book Description

1 Oct 2011

When sixteen-year-old Sally is evacuated to the English south coast, she is terrified by what lies ahead of her. All she knows are the sights and sounds of London's East End - but Sally swallows her tears as they leave the familiar landmarks behind, knowing that she has to be a Grown-Up Girl and play mother to her six-year-old brother Ernie. Playing mother is nothing new for Sally - their real mother Florrie, a good-time girl, hasn't even come to the station to wave them off and Ernie, crippled at an early age by polio, is used to depending on his older sister.

When they arrive in Cliffehaven, they're taken to live at the Beach View Boarding House where they're welcomed by the open-hearted Reilly family headed up by warm, loving Peggy, and life begins to improve. Sally gets a job in a uniforms factory to help pay her way - and to pay for Ernie's expensive medicines - but then Florrie arrives in Cliffehaven, bringing disaster with her. And Sally is forced to work out where her true loyalties lie ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Best read in a very long time 2 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback
Ellie Dean is a star this book was just brilliant what a storyline and setting so utterly believable and so well written, set in WW2 with a 'feckless mother' father away at sea Sally and her younger brother Ernie are evacuated to the seaside from the East End of London and there the story begins - what a roller coaster for Sally but all comes good in the end. Can't wait for Ellie Deans next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book which will warm your heart... 27 Oct 2012
By Petra "I love to read" TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There'll be Blue Skies by Ellie Dean is a book which I would recommend to all readers of fiction based on the Second World War era, especially those who like to read books which showed true friendship and old family values through this difficult time. If you are a fan of Lilian Harry or Annie Groves you will love this book as Ellie Dean is certainly an author who knows how to reach the readers through using characters who me as a reader could not stop caring for and all I wanted was a happy ending especially for Sally and little Ernie.
The main characters in this book where Sally Turner and her younger brother Ernie who was left disabled due to suffering polio as a child. They were being sent to live away from London due to the bombs and they do not realise this adventure which they are scared to go on is going to be the best thing that has ever happened them as at last they were going to be cared for in a way they have only been while their Grandmother was alive. Sally was more a mother to Ernie than their actual mother Florrie as you do meet her briefly and you will soon realise what Sally had to endure on a daily business while their father was risking his life daily by serving with the merchant navy. Sally is welcomed into Peggy Reilly's family like one of her own and they soon make her boarding house their home but Sally has her problems to face along with a touch of happiness but soon the war reaches the boarding house in ways she could not imagine.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book 8 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Sally and her younger brother Ernie are being evacuated to the south coast of England. Due to a luck they end up at the Beach View boarding house with the loveable Rielly family. In time both Sally and Ernie become one of the family but as the bombing increase and the arrival of their mother,things may change and not for the good.
"There'll be Blue Skies" is the first book in a series by Ellie Dean and it is great! Ms. Dean bring life on the south coast alive for the reader and gives the reader great characters. I can wait to read other books in the series!
