- Not available
Bestseller Maureen Lee returns to Bootle in this heart-warming tale set between Liverpool and London in the post-war years.
Liverpool 1945. Three women - the strongest of friends - return home, trying to fit back into their old lives after they've been demobbed. They've been thrown together by the war and shared all sorts of good and bad times. Now their old lives seem dull in comparison. But not for long...
Maggie and Nell are both twenty-one and full of hope and excitement. Iris, on the other hand, is feeling apprehensive about returning to civilian life. At the age of thirty, her only wish is to have a baby, but sadly this wish is yet to come true.
When one of the women falls pregnant, there begins a dramatic sequence of events so wide-reaching that the three friends' lives will become more intricately woven than they could imagine...
Over the next quarter of a century the story of these remarkable - and very different - women unfolds into an uplifting tale of how three ordinary families become extraordinary.

Excellent. Maureen Lee definitely knows how to write a good story. I was sorry when it came to the end.
“A very good book to read”
It took me a while to fully get into this book, but once I did I was engrossed in the many storylines that are interwoven between the many characters. A great read!
