  • A story about life

    A great story about the ups and downs of life, the secrets we keep and the problems that causes. Wonderful characters during a difficult period of time and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • Ideal title, gave a snapshot of what to expect

    An enjoyable read. The story line was well structured and not overcomplicated, although some parts were a little predicable, but that didn't detract from the story. I found the book easy to read and follow.

  • The Victory Tree

    This book was a fantastic read. I actually think The Victory Tree would have made a fitting title for this book. This story starts and ends with The Victory Tree". The Brooklyn and the restored building down the road play the most important part in the story. Two important buildings bringing joy and sorrow to so many. From the child evacuees from bombed out cities in England, the weary mill workers, the Hungarian refugees, to the troubled young unwed mother, all were welcomed with love and patience by the Belfield family, It all begins with young Maddy Belfield comes to stay with her grandmother and her aunt Plum, and the evacuees some who became friend forever, Gloria, Sid, Greg, and Maddy. The story follows these characters as they live and mature, making lives for themselves. There is romance, mistakes made, secrets kept, love and betrayal, and understanding. It is a story of growing up and living in the aftermath of a war torn nation. You will not want to miss a word in this book; it keeps you reading until the end. The book is very well written and the characters are believable and personable. The descriptions of the settings and especially the fashions and clothing worn are perfect. I recommend this book, and I know you will love it as much as I did. Thanks to Leah Fleming, Harper Collins, U.K., Avon, and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
