    Great

    Was such a cute story that took me to the 1940's and realised how it was back then with love, life and the war.

    A Beautiful, Enigmatic Tale!

    A terrific wartime saga - this one has lots of reading in it! Since the death of her father, it's only ever been Gracie and her mam; like most other families they struggle but manage to get by. Gracie works at Rosenberg Raincoats as a machinist and, for the most part, enjoys her work and the camaraderie there. When she falls in love with the boss's nephew, it causes all sorts of friction in her life. When Jacob does a vanishing act, it almost destroys Gracie - how can she continue not knowing where her sweetheart is? Set in Manchester at the very beginning of WWII, this is a beautiful and enigmatic tale with it's basis in truth. The story is skilfully woven into real events and is all the more exciting for it. The characters are well-rounded and the writing is carefully structured, turning this novel into a very attractive read. There are a lot of ups and downs along the way and the conclusion is very satisfying indeed. With it's fair share of sadness and happiness, it's a very accurate reflection - in my opinion, not that I was around to know - of domestic life in Britain during that period. I loved Gracie; she was a flawed character and all the better for it. I could easily place myself in her position, and really enjoyed everything about this book. Full credit to Alrene Hughes for her skills in writing and creating this one, and I'm absolutely delighted to have another of hers in my tbr list. Absolutely a full five stars!
