    Excellent Wartime Saga!

    This is my second book by Alrene Hughes, and it's a great read! Helen, newly wed, is looking forward to moving from her under her mother's thumb to her first marital home. However, Jim's sudden death changes everything. In her grief, Helen finally finds the courage to stand up to her domineering mother and stand on her own two feet. Helen finds temporary work but as time goes on, she wants more satisfaction from her job and decides to join the Women's Auxiliary Police Force where she can help others. What does the future hold for the young widow? This is a well-written tale of life in Manchester during WWII. The hard life endured, especially by women and children, is all between the pages and the pioneering spirit shines through. With a great variety of characters and some skilful writing, it's a very easy read and packed with detail. Several interweaving stories all twist together beautifully to make a very endearing read with, along with grief and sadness, a bit of mystery and a bit of romance. By the final page, all the loose ends are neatly tied off - my much preferred ending! An excellent wartime saga and well worth reading. For me, this is a five star novel.
