A Ration Book Dream Synopsis

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED AS POCKETFUL OF DREAMS ________________________________________ The first instalment in a delightfully nostalgic saga set during World War 2, following the trials and tribulations of a larger-than-life East End family. ____________________________________ In the darkest days of the Blitz, hope is more important than ever. It's 1939, and as the country is preparing for the challenging times ahead, the Brogan family of London's East End is trying to keep their spirits up. But things don't seem so rosy when rationing, evacuation and air-raids start to put this larger-than-life family to the test. When a mysterious young man arrives in the local community, he provides just the dazzling distraction they need - and for eldest daughter Mattie, the promise of more than she'd ever wished for. But as the pair fall deeper in love, they are drawn into secret dangers, rife on the very London streets they call home. As the young couple race to protect the East End, can their dreams survive the darkening backdrop of wartime...? RNA Pure Passions Awards shortlisted 2010 Winner Romance Reader Award (historical) 2011
