A busy story about the residents of Pearl Street centring on four families with quite a mix of relationships, some inbreeding and some uncertainty about who is related to whom; all great fun. The title comes from the fact that Liverpool city is built around seven main streets which one of the girls becomes fascinated by. It is a lovely story and there are many. Another that is delightful is the one about the girl who is attracted to an Italian POW – and so on. Lots of human stories bustling together in a highly enjoyable read.

Synopsis

The Seven Streets of Liverpool by Maureen Lee

Pearl Street in Liverpool has already seen its share of drama and tragedy in the opening years of the War, but as the residents prepare for Christmas 1942, its spirit and friendship in adversity binds them closely together. Since her RAF husband was seriously injured, Eileen has worried about the growing distance between them. Why does Nick finding every excuse to stay in London on his weekends off, not returning to his loving wife and gorgeous little boy in Liverpool? Lena Newton has longed for a baby of her own but, with her husband posted overseas with the Navy, it's looking unlikely. Lena's lonely days are brightened by visits to the cinema with her neighbour, Mr Ransome, until a familiar face returns to Pearl Street ...Since she discovered her American lover was already married, Kitty has hidden away, too ashamed to return to Pearl Street in disgrace with her baby. Finally facing her fears - and her old friends and neighbours - Kitty learns that life has one more surprise in store for her. As the final years of the war are played out, Pearl Street sees friendships forged, hearts broken, babies born and the most joyful of reunions.
