A great warm comforting read

This book saw me through a nasty cold and made me feel warm and comforted with its good old fashioned values. one of my favourite narrator's helped deliver the best experience. Didn't ever get the link between Eileen and Rose. Being a romantic would like to have had a better end for the heroine.

Excellent war time series

This is the 4th book in the series that I've listened to , I love the way Annie Aldington brings the characters alive. The recurring characters now feel like old friends that you want the best for.
It really brings the reality of living through daily air raids and how scary it really must have been
Excellent books can't wait to start the next one
