Avid reader’s thoughts

A well written story of Second World War. Family life in Liverpool even down to growing vegetables to help the Spartan diet. Very moving and informative.

Book description

With the scars of World War I still fresh, the Dransfield family face further challenges…When Steven Dransfield loses his fortune in the Depression, his wife Leonie is forced to save the family from ruin. But Steve resents the success of her dressmaking business and, trapped in a loveless marriage, Leonie is drawn into the arms of another man.
