Beautiful wartime story!

This novel is based around a group of children growing up in Brighton prior to and during WW2.
As beautiful and heartbreaking as any wartime love story. Beautifully narrated by Rebecca Courtney, the story follows the children from a very young age to aduthood with all tbe laughter, heartbreak and sorrow growing up can bring. This is a very good novel, highly recommended...but if I hear the word "daddy" one more time I might just scream!
A must read for all wartime romance fans!
