Author Lizzie Lane

Thank you for letting me read this ARC, great book. Lizzie’s writing style is easy to follow and filled with facts to match the historical time line of the story. Roy is still his controlling unpleasant self. Jenny has her work cut out remaining calm and trying to raise her two girls the best she can. Tilly and Gloria deserve so much more. We encounter cockroaches, bed bugs and amongst others love interests. What will Jenny do, can she improve her life? The story is told well and at times had me on the edge of my seat wondering where she will find her strength. A recommended read.

But trouble feels never too far away. With Roy spending more time away with Sir Oswald Molesey bullying black shirts, Jenny is left to her own devices and eager to fit in begins to make new friends.

Thankful of peace, Jenny has her head turned firstly by an old love and then by her knight in shining armour.
