As with all Helen Forresters books you can almost live inside the pages of this book which follows three unique ladies in wartime Liverpool. You really feel as though you are a fly on the wall in the houses. Once you pick any of Helen Forresters Books you cannot put them down. i was that enthralled I read this book in a day.

I've read several of Ms Forrester's books and although I quite enjoyed this one, it didn't engage me as the others did. The 'three women' are a spinster. Emma, who looked after her difficult parents until they died, then quickly found a boyfriend - a seaman - to whom she soon became engage. Gwen, her sister in law who is a cleanliness fanantic and is resentful of her sister in law's happiness, but feels guilty that she did nothing to help nurse her husband's parents (but wants to keep all the lovely furniture that Emma brought to her house when she moved in until her wedding), and finally Ellen Donnelly, the Irish next door neighbour with 5 filthy children and who resents Gwen as much as is resented back.

The war and dreadful bombing of Liverpool changes the three lives in many ways and throws them into unimaginably awful situations (I do not want to spoil the story).

I found the characters less 'believable' than those in previous books in many ways, and was disappointed with the sudden ending that left many loose ends. The 'about the author' was an unfinished page from the book? In the Kindle edition anyway.

I won't be buying any more of these books as I feel I've read the best of them - particularly Twopence to cross the Mersey.
This was a freebie, so can't complain I wasted any money!

This novel tells us the story of Emmie, her sister in law Gwen & their neighbour Ellen during a week in May 1941 when Liverpool is heavily bombed.
I enjoyed this easy read novel and got through it quickly, I'd recommend it to fans of Maureen Lee.
I downloaded the kindle version which does have a few spelling errors and also the about the author section at the end is just a brief description of the novel.

It is what it is a good read about life during the war, it does make you think how ever the people lived in the towns during the bombings. I think our younger generations should be given books like this to read in school, it makes you think how lucky we are, for the life style that we now have, thanks to them.
