Praise for Helen Carey's Lavender Road novels
'Written with a lightness of touch, an emotional integrity and an historical accuracy which has brought her respect from critics and readers alike(Louis de Bernières)
Sparkling storytelling (Evening Standard)
Having read and re-read her previous books, I've been awaiting this new Helen Carey novel for a good long while and am thrilled to say that the wait was ( more than) well worth it... All the hallmarks of novel writing at its very best - strong characters, wonderful plot lines, thorough research and vivid imagination (Amazon Reader)
The emotions and behaviours of the characters are realistically represented and the reader is quickly drawn to wanting to follow the drama and discover the outcome. Hope we don't have to wait as long for the next one... I want to know what happens next! (Amazon Reader)
What a great read! I really loved this book and found it hard to put down! I found the book exciting, funny and touching. I can't recommend it enough. (Amazon Reader)
An irresistible, romantic and nostalgic novel about a resilient community of friends and neighbours in Clapham, south London, during the Second World War - not to be missed by readers of Lilian Harry, Kate Thompson and Annie Murray.See all Product description

I knew I was in for a treat when I first received this wonderful book, I honestly did not realise how big a treat as Helen Carey has a gift of surprising her readers with storylines which gripped me, mixing historical facts with fiction throughout this book made London's Calling a total delight to read.
I loved how she continued with the characters us readers previously met in the earlier books, Katie and her very handsome and brave husband Ward, Mollie, Joyce and her daughters and a few more along the way.
Each of them had their own story to tell and I have to say they were so different from each other. I loved how the author showed the bravery of the Londoners but also she showed what daily life was like for them. What made this book special was how the author showed that even the most ordinary person could turn out to be the biggest hero of all, for me the hero within this book was Molly as she refuses to take no for an answer when her friend and old resident of Lavender Road Helen's life is in danger, this one decision will take Molly on her own adventures and for me I have to say I loved to read off her adventures and of course her heartache. This book for me was one I could not guess what was happening next, as Helen Carey and her wonderful gift of storytelling had me on the edge of my seat as with each page the reader was taken on a journey across the world following characters which were as different from chalk and cheese, yet each of them entertained me throughout.
I am happy to recommend London Calling written by Helen Carey as a brilliant work of fiction which was threaded with historical facts, full of acts of bravery which showed the brave people of Britain as they stood up against Hitler in their daily lives.
The full series is as follows,
1. Lavender Road
2. Some Sunny Day
3. On a Wing and a Prayer (Lavender Road Book 3)
4. London Calling
This book has absolutely everything and despite its length I flew through it. From the struggles at home, to real danger abroad, we follow the characters we love through all sorts of challenges and triumphs. It's extremely well written, with enough factual information to bring the stories into context. Yet it's not heavy either, with moments of fun and light relief throughout. Can't sing it's praises enough, I loved it.
Excellent and highly recommended
