About the Book:
In the darkest days of the Blitz, love is more important than ever.
It’s February 1942, and as the Americans finally join Britain and her allies, twenty-three-year-old Francesca Fabrino is doing her bit for the war effort in a factory in East London. But her thoughts are constantly occupied by recently married Charlie Brogan, who is fighting in North Africa with the Eighth Army.
When Francesca starts a new job for the BBC Overseas department, she meets handsome Count Leo D’Angelo and begins to put her hopeless love for Charlie aside. But then Charlie returns from the front, his marriage in ruins and his heart burning for Francesca at last. Could she, a good Catholic girl, countenance an affair with the man she has always longed for? Or should she choose Leo and a different, less dangerous path?

I just love this series of books, and I found that, even though it was a while since I’d read the last one, I just was seamlessly transported back into this era.
There’s exciting changes for Francesca as she leaves the factory for the glamorous world of the BBC, and meets the suave and urbane Leo. But she’s always loved Charlie, and can’t really let go of this, even though he’s married.
You can’t help but feel that these two are meant to be, and hope that it will work out for them. They’re both characters that I really like.
As always, Jean Fullerton’s books are so authentic. This book totally consumed me, and it was such a pleasure to read.
The plot is, as always, so entertaining and engaging, but it’s the fabulous characters that make this book.
Even though it’s set in an era of war, with tragedy and hardship, it’s a truly warm and uplifting read. I really hope there’ll be more in this series, I could never tire of them.
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
