SYNOPSIS/BOOK BLURB &purchase links

London Spring 1920

Harpers is beginning to flourish once more after the end of the war but for Sally Harper the problems continue.

Husband Ben is moody, sometimes distant, and she feels he is shutting her out at home and at work, but why?

It takes a terrible tragedy to make them realise their love and respect is still true.

The ladies and girls who work at Harpers continue to battle with problems in their own lives.

Marion is still trying to reach her war-damaged husband and Lilly is battling with her pain and shame.

It’s a period of transition for all.

The doors of Harpers are busy welcoming new and returning staff whilst bidding a fond farewell to others.

This is the beginning of a new era and there is a fresh buzz of excitement in the air.

Another great addition to the ever unfolding world of Harpers Emporium. Now in peacetime after WW1 the men are returning and the women are absolutely not going to give up their work places that have kept them going through the war years. Some of the men are beginning to show signs of shell shock and some haven’t returned at all.

As always these characters are brilliantly written and are strong, with high morals and caring personalities. There is a fair amount of sadness in this book but it really highlights the horrors of war and how hard it impacted on some of these well loved characters. There is jealously, love, sadness, friendships and promises of marriage.

I thoroughly enjoyed this instalment and I feel that Harpers will go on from strength to strength.
