Not even the Blitz can shake a mother's love.

Cathy was a happy, blushing bride when Britain went to war with Germany three years ago. But her youthful dreams were crushed by her violent husband Stanley's involvement with the fascist black-shirts, and even when he's conscripted to fight she knows it's only a brief respite - divorce is not an option. Cathy, a true Brogan daughter, stays strong for her beloved little son Peter.

When a telegram arrives declaring that her husband is missing in action, Cathy can finally allow herself to hope - she only has to wait 6 months before she is legally a widow and can move on with her life. In the meantime, she has to keep Peter safe and fed. So she advertises for a lodger, and Sergeant Archie McIntosh of the Royal Engineers' Bomb Disposal Squad turns up. He is kind, clever and thoughtful; their mutual attraction is instant. But with Stanley's fate still unclear, and the Blitz raging on over London's East End, will Cathy ever have the love she deserves?

Jean Fullerton, the queen of the East End saga, returns with a wonderful new nostalgic novel.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Richly-textured and engrossing... Jean Fullerton's meticulous research and background knowledge enable her to create a wholly convincing and engaging wartime novel... Completely immersive. With humour to lighten the mood as well it can be laugh-out-loud funny as well as deeply poignant, but it is the emotional richness and heart to the book that draws the story together and makes this such a rewarding read. * Nicola Cornick, Historia, on A Ration Book Childhood *
Lovely... The author's writing captures the atmosphere and emotions and difficulties of life during wartime. It is a great piece of historical fiction which centres on World War II... The book was an emotional read with a few tears along the way. * New Books Magazine, on A Ration Book Childhood *
Charming and full of detail... You will ride emotional highs and lows... Beautifully written. * The Lady on Jean Fullerton *
A real page-turner with larger-than-life characters and convincing period detail * Daily Express, praise for A Ration Book Christmas *
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, on A Ration Book Christmas *
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 Pearce, on Call Nurse Millie *

“Good book set in war-time”

The characters are very life-like and the little details about the war are so accurate and sets the scene for the story. The fact that there are many female characters in a book set in wartime is refreshing and... More
