    story of war, family, love and community

    This is a story of war, family, pooling community resources and love. In 1941 in England, twins Mary and Ruby Sweet with their father, Stan, run a bakery in a small English town. Mary and Ruby also work for the Ministry teaching housewives how to make do with the rations they have. Mary is introverted, the safe sister, always doing what is needed, she is engaged to a Canadian Pilot, Michael Dangerfield; Ruby is out going, you could say boy crazy and always ready to party. Stan is also raising his niece, Frances, after her mother ran off. Mary and Ruby’s brother Charlie was lost at sea when his ship was attacked, and their father has never recovered. He has given up on life. However even in war, life goes on and the discovery that Charlie has a son out of wedlock renews Stan’s vigor for life. The entire family is renewed with the advent of little Charlie into their home. Life goes on, and Charlie brightens the sad times. Michael and Mary have many issues to resolve before they can find happy ever after. Mary is very sexually inexperienced and afraid, Michael will have to call on all his understanding and patience when dealing with a young inexperienced wife that also doesn’t want to leave her family hearth and home. Mary will grow to understand the meaning of home is not her father’s home, but where her husband lives. Watching Mary grow up and become a mature woman was a joy. Ruby will have to learn a life lesson when dealing with men, as some are not what they seem, while others are much more. She will grow up and become a mature young woman. This is story of a family that goes through the fires of war and comes out stronger. It is also the story of country and community coming together to survive and doing it well. The author also addressed the subject of abuse, as one young member of the community, Miriam, was abuse by her religiously fanatical mother who saw nothing but sin in everything and everyone. I wanted to cry for this young woman. The recipes were a bonus and I loved reading about the things the English had to do to bake a cake and cook, and how they procured fat for baking. This was very enlightening. I received this book from the publisher and Netgalley in return for an honest review.
