Publisher's Summary

Liverpool, 1938. It’s Christmas in the Courts, and single mother Rosheen Clarke and her mischievous twin daughters, April and May, have no idea of the cataclysmic events which will soon overtake them.
When war is declared, April and May are evacuated to the countryside, and Rosheen joins the WAAF, where she befriends fellow Liverpudlian Cassie Valentine. While Rosheen worries about what trouble the twins will cause next, Cassie is fighting her love for her childhood friend, Andy. Because ever since he joined the RAF, he has become arrogant and remote. Will their love be another casualty of war?
Cassie and Rosheen support each other as best they can, but it will be many years before the Christmas bells ring out again.

A nice read if a little abridged in places

I have listened to many Katie flynns and love the narrator Anne Dover.
although this one did flow I didn't enjoy it as much as others. sometimes the story jumped forward in time sometimes just after a big thing occurred or sometimes over a few years. So it felt almost like an abridged version at times, because parts of the story I would've liked to have had more detail on were just not there or only briefly referred to. This is strange for a Katie Flynn as normally she stays with characters.

I didn't feel as connected to the characters because the story was split over two groups whereas her stories usually centre on just one. Having said this there was still enough for me to want to stay with it to the end.
