Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The story of a widow and her three very different daughters. They all have babies, in and out of wedlock, and the mother is hard pressed to do the right thing for each of them. Once the blitz starts their lives become very difficult. This is a book that falls into two parts, pre-war and then the war, dramatic and terrible. It is an excellent tale of its type.

If you like Anne Baker you might also like to read books by Maureen Lee, Joan Jonker and Lizzie Lane.

Synopsis

Wartime Girls by Anne Baker

Set in Liverpool during the Depression and the Blitz of the Second World War, Anne Baker's dramatic saga brings a close-knit community vividly to life. It is the day of the Grand National, 1933, when Susie Ingram's fiance, Danny, is killed in a tragic accident. In a cruel twist of Fate, Susie discovers she is carrying Danny's child and, shunned by his parents, she turns to her mother for support. Louise Ingram, widowed during the First World War, knows how hard it is to bring up a family alone, but with the help of her eldest daughter, Martha, who lives next door, they manage to survive. When little Rosie is born there is no doubt that she is Danny's daughter, but it is destined to take many more years of heartache before the two families are united again...
