As good as book 1

Loved this very human story of what life was like for many people in inner cities in the early 1950s.

Heartwarming, heartbreaking.

Nadine Dorries and Georgia Macguire draw you expertly into the heart of the community of the slums of Liverpool after the war. The characters are warm, caring, loving - sharing what little they have with those in need.

The hospital community, by contrast, on the surface is much more regimented and disciplined - but underneath beats a warm, caring, loving heart.

This story, told through the eyes of Lily and her family, the gentle nurses, the affluent, arrogant Amy and the lovely Lockey tells of loyalty, love and loss. On more than one occasion, I could not stop the tears from rolling down my face, I was there with them all.

The intricate, but beautiful 'love dances' that grew and developed throughout the story were sweet and - for the most part - innocent. The underlying deceit weaving its way through the story, kept me asking myself where this was going - didn't expect that!!

I was so disappointed when I finished this book as I thought it would be a long time until the next one comes out. Imagine my excitement when looking through audible for another of Nadine's books (I have 'read' them all), to find that The Mothers of Lovely Lane is out. Needless to say, I have already downloaded it - can't wait 🤗.
