About this ebook

No one is spared from the heartache of war

As the Blitz destroys lives in Liverpool, three sisters are forced to make difficult choices to protect themselves and those they love.

When Nellie Callaghan marries her love in secret, it causes a rift in the family. But when the bombs drop on Liverpool grievances must be put aside as the people of the city are brought to despair. Nellie’s mother is killed and her sister Lottie is injured, while her other sister Babs runs away to join the WLA. It falls to Nellie to care for the family.

Despite the suffering that the war brings, it is trouble on the homefront that leads to further hardship for each of the sisters. Before the war is over, each of the Callaghans will have faced heartbreak and sacrifice. But amongst the sadness they will find some joy, and never giving up hope for a brighter future.

June Francis

June Francis’ introduction to stories was when her father came home from the war and sat her on his knee and told her tales from Hans Christian Anderson. Being a child during such an austere period, her great escape was the cinema where she fell in love with Hollywood movies, loving in particular musicals and Westerns. Years later, after having numerous articles published in a women's magazine, she knew that her heart really lay in the novel and June has been writing ever since.
