  • Both Fascinating and Entertaining!

    What a pleasure to be back in the Pig and Whistle and be re-acquainted with all the residents of Mulberry Lane! Rosie Clarke’s second book in this series continues with the ongoing saga of life in London during the Blitz.We find out how Peggy and her family are managing in the local pub, struggling to maintain a business despite rationing and bombing. Janet, her daughter, is striving to come to terms with her injured husband having lost his memory but has to keep going for the sake of their baby daughter Maggie. Son Pip is now serving in the RAF, with very intermittent trips home. Her husband, Laurie, continues to work for the war effort and is posted far from home, but the shadow of his affair with a younger woman casts a long shadow. Friend Maureen’s life continues but no longer at the beck and call of her father, she has taken up nursing and has Rory back in her life. She finds herself with a whole new set of friends through her new career and is feeling loved, valued and happy with her vocation. We pick up the threads of life with all the characters from the first novel popping up, and it’s a truly great sequel. The strength of the local women during this time is astounding .. surviving on low rations with a dearth of goods in the shops and yet they look after each other and it is easy to see why they didn’t go back to being subservient after the war was over. Having to make decisions on a daily basis to keep not only their families, but the community, together. This is both a fascinating and entertaining read. I’ve always been fond of books set in this period and am already looking forward to the next in this series. Definitely a set of novels not to be missed! My thanks to publishers Aria for approving my copy via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • An excellent book set in the East End during World

    Although I hadn’t read the first book in the series I found it very easy to get to know the wonderful characters in this book which is set during World War 2. The story has different threads for the different characters but they are all entwined in some way due to the Mulberry Lane setting of the title. This story is primarily a story of the strength of the women and the way they handle the hardships and the separation caused by the awful war. I would highly recommend this book and sincerely hope that there is another book in the series in the pipeline as I want to know more about what happens to Peggy, Maureen and the other brilliant characters in the future. Thanks to Netgalley and Aria Fiction for providing me with a review copy of this book in return for an honest review which is completely my own opinion.

  • Mulberry girls

    Did not want the story to end. When you care about the characters you know it's a group book.
