  • Love and War

    The Harpers Girls, working at Harpers Department Store, are like family. They care for each other and stick together. Sally , Rachel, Marion, Minnie, Beth, Maggie, and Becky joining in to help. They all have to find the strength to manage as war threatens and then is declared in Britain. This is a story of the girls, their husbands, boyfriends, rekindled loves, and brothers. Of sending loved ones off to war. Of the day to day existence working at Harpers and what it means to each of the girls. Their home life, challenges, and heartaches. The marriages and romances and loss of loved ones. How they come together to help and encourage each other. I love how the book describes the dresses they wear and make. The fabric, the colors and the textures. That even when times are grim whether at home with the family or with those gone to war the girls always are at home at Harpers and they are always there for each other. I love the Characters, all the girls and their husbands, boyfriends and loves. The store characters and the little girl Jenny. How Becky is growing up in a troubled time and is making the most of it, gaining a new stepmother, working a Harpers and meeting that handsome soldier at the dance. I hope there is another book so we can hear more about Becky and her soldier and how the other's fare in the war, the one that went to be a nurse, and the men that left for war. I love this series as well as the Mulberry Lane series. Rosie Clarke just writes good clean reading, what a refreshing book. It is wonderful after reading something more intense to pick up one of Rosie's books and just sit back and enjoy the story. I would recommend this book and the series. Thanks to Rosie Clarke, Boldwood Books, and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advance copy of the book for an honest review.

  • A Cracking Addition to this Series!

    Another fabulous read from Rosie Clarke advancing the story of the Harpers Girls that little bit further . . . Two years on from the opening of Harpers Emporium on Oxford Street, life is moving on for both the owners and the staff, all with one goal in mind; making sure the store continues to get bigger and better! There is a dark cloud hanging over Britain with the threat of war attached and life has a dull edge to it these days. As young men plan to be among the first to sign up to fight for their country, women are just as determined to do their bit. The staff at Harpers are no different and the thought of war hangs over each and every day. Our original girls are moving on with their lives in many different ways, but their friendships are as strong as ever. The introductions of a few new characters keeps things fresh, but none of the originals are forgotten. Beautifully crafted, each one takes on a personality of their own and it all adds up to a stirring read with a bit of mystery, lots of love and a big dollop of uncertainty. A cracking addition to the series, and one I heartily recommend. A superb read which earns every one of the five stars I'm happy to give.

  • Waning

    I enjoyed the first two of the series ,I found this book a bit soppy ,a lot of it was filling in the reader of the characters and events of the previous Books . At times I wanted to give the characters a good shake ,I wouldn’t rush out to get the the next episode but would wait and borrow it from the library.

  • A heartwarming historical novel

    Rainy Days for the Harpers Girls by Rosie Clarke is the 3rd novel in Welcome to Harpers Emporium series. This is a series that is best read in order. Each book builds upon the previous one. I like the characters in this engaging historical series. We follow the different characters who work at Harpers Emporium. I find them to be realistic. Each person has their own struggles and issues that they are dealing with at the present time. I like that the ladies are involved in women’s suffrage. Rachel likes her new job as floor walker at Harpers and has a beau. He betrayed her with an article he wrote, so she is not sure that she can trust him. Marion Kaye is a new hire at Harpers. Her mother is ill and has basically given up on life thanks to her bully of a husband. Marion is responsible for caring for her mother, her younger siblings, and the house even though she is only seventeen. Reggie Jackson has shown his interest in Marion, but she is unsure about marriage (who can blame her). Miss Minnie likes living with Rachel and the other ladies, but she still grieves the loss of her sister. Miss Minnie gave up the love of her life to stay with her sister. Imagine her surprise when she runs into the same man at Harpers. Rainy Days for the Harpers Girls takes place in the spring of 1914 when the situation in Europe is escalating. I thought the author captured the time-period with the various historical events and how people felt about the looming war. I enjoyed catching up with the characters in Rainy Days for the Harpers Girls. I like Rosie Clarke’s conversational writing style which draws the reader right in. I enjoyed the descriptions of the various products sold at Harpers (the jewelry, hats, scarfs, and handbags). I liked the reference to Yardley products which makes my favorite soap. I am looking forward to the next tale in Welcome to Harpers Emporium series. Rainy Days for the Harpers Girls is an entertaining historical novel with missing merchandise, impending conflict, financial strain, budding romance, upcoming birth, and store expansion.
