1944, from the Blitz to Shropshire, from the dashing American airmen to tragedy. This is one of those highly eventful, gritty sagas that really keeps you glued to the page. She is very good.

If you like Lily Baxter you might also like to read books by Maggie Ford, Annie Groves and Ellie Dean.

Synopsis

The Shopkeeper's Daughter by Lily Baxter

June 1944. Ginnie Travis is working in her father's furniture shop, when the continued bombing raids and her sister Shirley's untimely pregnancy force the two girls to go and stay with their aunt in Shropshire. Here Ginnie falls in love with an American, Lieutenant Nick Miller, stationed nearby. But she discovers that Nick has a fiancee back home and a heartbroken Ginnie ends the relationship. Then news of their father's death in an air raid reaches them. With the family left almost penniless and Shirley and her child to provide for, Ginnie is responsible for them all. And when the shop comes under threat, she is even more determined to make it succeed and build a new life for herself and her family.
