    Final novel in The Mulberry Lane series

    The Women of Mulberry Lane by Rosie Clarke is the fifth and final novel in The Mulberry Lane series. When I pick up a Mulberry Lane novel, it is like visiting old friends. I am sad that this is the last time I will get to spend time with Peggy, Maureen, Tom, Janet, Shirley and the rest of the residents of Mulberry Lane. The Mulberry Lane series does need to be read in order. I thought The Women of Mulberry Lane was well-written and engaging. I was drawn into the story from the very first page and I stayed up very late to finish it. Peggy Ashley is such a wonderful character with her big heart, friendly smile and ever ready cup of tea. Peggy deserves a happy ending after everything she has been through. She is a strong woman with a positive outlook. Tom Barton is one of my favorites. He has come a long way since the beginning, and he is liked by everyone on Mulberry Lane. There are, of course, those disagreeable characters (i.e.—Rory and Laurie) and I keep hoping that they will get their comeuppance. I like how the people in the lane stick together. They are there to help each other in good times and, most especially, in bad. The Women of Mulberry Lane is an emotional novel and you will need to have a box of tissues nearby. There is love, heartbreak, joy, grief, and anger as the residents of Mulberry Lane struggle to survive the war. Rosie Clarke captures the time period with the way the characters speak, the clothing, the war work women had to do in addition to their other responsibilities, and rationing (food, clothes, petrol). Life is never easy for the residents of the East End, but the struggle was even more intense during the war. You will not want to miss this final installment in The Mulberry Lane series to see how our characters stories play out. The Women of Mulberry Lane has squabbling siblings, booming bombs, wounded soldiers, boundless tea, and forever friends.

    Very Satisfying End to a Wonderful Series!

    An absolutely terrific conclusion to this heartwarming series!  As it nears the end of the war the women of Mulberry Lane face even more worry and heartbreak and, as they have done throughout the fighting years, they draw together and support each other through thick and thin .. and there are some very hard times indeed. I have loved everything about these books. Rosie Clarke has hit exactly the right notes, keeping the story true to real life during World War Two while creating a fabulous array of characters. The hardships along with the day to day struggles make for riveting reading and with several families in the lane, there is a great variety of personalities and stories. Everything about this rang true - not that I was around during the war, but I have read plenty about it and my own parents survived it - although I do realise that life in the capital city was far removed from that in the Scottish countryside! I have enjoyed each and every one of the previous four novels but this one brings everything to a very satisfying end, leaving no story line unfinished and I shall miss the Mulberry Lane books. However, I'm looking forward to whatever this author comes up with next - she's always worth reading. A full five stars for this one, no doubt about it.
