    One thought on “The Apple of her Eye”

    1. These are the kind of subject novels I used to read years ago and I can't help but to return to them once in a while especially ones written by this author among a few others I keep my eye on.Pamela Evans writes such a good powerful heart felt story that you can't help but be mixed up in their lives, no matter if it was based back in the war times where I wasn't around then.The war is on and a pub, which is the local one for folk around Chiswick takes a hit from the bombing.Tragedy strikes not o [...]

    2. This type of book I call my 'comfort' books and this one was no exception. I have always enjoyed family sagas especially back in the 30' and 40's. This book was based in London just at the end of the Second World War. It had all the elements to make it a good family drama type book. This was the first book I'd read by Pamela Evans and I will definitely read more.Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an ARC of this book in return for an honest review.

    3. I will definately be reading more from this author****Please note this review contains spoilers****I really enjoyed this book, the wartime London setting was a great background setting and it was lovely to see each character unfold and connect through the book. I commend the author on her writing of several emotions and not just assuming the obvious feelings she could have gone for ie. Beryl being worried about being pregnant after losing her husband in bombing rather than just assuming she'd be [...]

    4. The first time I have read a book by Pam Evans, iIt was a very enjoyable read, similar in style to another favourite of mine, Pam Weaver. Will definitely look for other books by this author

    5. Lovely, enjoyable, at times sad family saga set in post World War II London. Have read a few of Pam Evans's novels, she always delivers a good story, and 'The Apple of her Eye' is no exception.
