In the darkest days of the Blitz, love is more important than ever. It's February 1942, and as the Americans finally join Britain and her allies, twenty-three-year-old Francesca Fabrino is doing her bit for the war effort in a factory in East London. But her thoughts are constantly occupied by recently married Charlie Brogan, who is fighting in North Africa with the Eighth Army. When Francesca starts a new job for the BBC Overseas department, she meets handsome Count Leo D'Angelo and begins to put her hopeless love for Charlie aside. But then Charlie returns from the front, his marriage in ruins and his heart burning for Francesca at last. Could she, a good Catholic girl, countenance an affair with the man she has always longed for? Or should she choose Leo and a different, less dangerous path? Jean Fullerton, the queen of the East End saga, returns with a wonderful new nostalgic novel.
Charming and full of detail about the work of a nurse in 1940s London, you will ride emotional highs and lows with each new birth and death. Beautifully written. * The Lady on Jean Fullerton * A delightful, well-researched story that really does depict nursing and the living conditions in the East End at the end of the war. * Lesley Pearse on Call Nurse Millie * A lovely, fascinating, proper treat of a read set during the Blitz of World War Two... A Ration Book Christmas is food for the soul, it's simply deliciously readable and enjoyable. * Liz Robinson, LoveReading * A real page-turner with larger-than-life characters and convincing period detail. * Daily Express on A Ration Book Christmas *
