Peggy Reilly is still the main stay of this wonderful read and we are brought back into the lives of those who lodge in her home in the year 1942, rationing is holding on tight but that does not stop Peggy opening not only her home to those in need but her heart is filled for those she counts as her friends, especially the very talented yet still very timid Mary who has arrived in the previous book in this wonderful series While We're Apart: Beach View Boarding House 8. With the help of her new friends as the book continued I loved how Mary learned to trust her own feelings and at last she allows her confidence to grow. This was made quite evident as Doris the formidable sister of Peggy stretches her snobbish power throughout the seaside town of Cliffehaven.
This book was extra special for me as Rosie Braithwaite the landlady of the Anchor also starred hugely in this brilliant read and at last the author finally lets us get to know the real Rosie behind the made up face and the platinum hair which she uses as a mask against the world, of course her brother Tommy is doing what he does best and if you have followed the series of books which I loved and also highly recommend, you will know what he is known for throughout each of the nine books.
There is so much I love about this book, my main love has to be the characters and how the author brought the history of each of the characters alive allowing the past still controlling each of the main characters in the most unexpected ways.
Ellie Dean has a wonderful gift and as she mixes fiction with historical facts she certainly has written a brilliant read which had me gripped from the first page.

Ellie Dean also writes under the name of Tamara McKinley which I as a reader also love. These books are blessed once again with a writer who not only brings the story alive but through the author's writing the beauty of Australia is brought to me in an exceptional unforgettable way. Australia is the country she knew as her home until she moved to the U.K.
It. As the people in it I have read before. In Paperback.
Before I got my Kindle. Which i now wouldn't be without.
I have read about Peggy. And her sister Doris. Who is a very
Stuck up snob. And doesn't seem to .enjoy life as it should be
Lived. No wonder her husband left her .so would I if I lived as
Evacuees. At her house. Like Ivy. And Mary I would much rather. stay with Peggy Reilly. She is down to earth type of person
And you would know where you stood with her. She sounds
Fun. And yet. Has her moments .but sounds fair. I like ronan
He seems to know .how things are run around the house.
Cordelia sounds a Happy soul. And the girls she has to stay
With her. Are all good. It seems like a lovely happy home life
They are living. I would love to go back to that time.
I know they were going through a war. But life seemed more
Easy. Somehow. Down to earth. Never having to watch what
You say. Only radios. No tv sets And no violence or very little
To what we get nowadays. Yes I would love to go back in
Time. If we could. It was much better when I was young.
The world seemed a better place. To live in. Around 1950s
But sadly we can't. pity. But can read Ellie Dean and Escape
For a while. Life seemed great . But knew it wasn't. There was
A war looming. And they had to make do. With things.
But she made it seem so good. And funny at times.
So I would love to give this book five stars. As I couldn't
Put it down. Wanted to read what came next . And I felt
I was there living it with them. Such a nice escape for a while
Into the 1940s with Peggy and Family.
Well I want to give this Book Five stars cause it gave me
Lots of happy reading hours. And didn't want it to Finnish.
But I can always read another of her books..
Thanks Ellie Dean. For a lovely read. Enjoyed this Book very much.
