    One thought on “Goodbye Sweetheart”

    1. In the days leading up to September 1939, and then continuing on through the siege of Dunkirk, the residents of April Grove, in Portsmouth, attempt to adjust to a world shifting under their feet. This is the first book in the series, and we are introduced to the main characters and their loved ones, and given a taste of what's to come.

    5. brilliant read! set in my favorite era, makes you realise just what people had to go through back then. totally hooked to this series.
