    Historical fiction and its best!

    This is a beautifully written heartbreaking story of two sisters, Dorothy 8 and Esther "Etty" 4, who were left by their mother at an orphanage, Blakely Hall, in November 1929. They did not know why they were being left there but they kept hoping their mother would come back; however, she never did. Dorothy was the first to leave and go to work for a local family when she reached a certain age. When Etty was old enough to leave, she was allowed to go and live with Dorothy who had a job and a flat by that time. Dorothy meets, falls in love and marries Lawrence "Laurie" Calvert. He is sent off to war in the Navy as a signalman in a submarine. Etty meets Trevor Milne and begins dating him but then she meets Billy Buckley who is dating her friend May and falls in love with him. Lots of unforgettable, heartbreaking things happen in this story that will definitely tug at your heartstrings. This story is about family, heartbreaking events and forgiveness. I absolutely loved this superb page turner. Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC of this outstanding book in exchange for an honest review.

    Great title

    I enjoyed the story immensely. However, I found it ended abruptly, I was waiting for more. This I have found very frustrating in other books. We get deep into a story plot and bang it ends!

    The orphans

    It was ok. A bit weak and drawn out at times. But a pleasant read.
