Book Description

It’s never too late to start again . . .

From the Author

Birmingham Rose still has a very special place in my heart.
It was the first 'Birmingham' book I wrote, I had three very small children
at the time and our fourth daughter - who of course, had to be called
Rose!- arrived soon after I had finished it!
I had a very interesting time finding out about Birmingham as it used to
be, as many older people who remembered it had described it to me, before
it was knocked about by all the bombs and bulldozers,and the trams were
still running. Brum is such a fast moving place that history soon gets
covered over, and can often only be glimpsed. Through finding out about
life in the old neighbourhoods of the city and how hard things were for so
many people, I began to see the place with new eyes.
The story also takes us to Italy, and into all sorts of adventures when
Rose joins the army and into the arms of a very special man. The war
certainly changed life for a great many people, and in some happy cases,
not always for the worse...
