    1. I do like family sagas, especially those set in WWII and I thoroughly enjoyed the story of Georgia Smith, who we first meet in 1940 when she is evacuated from London to rural Suffolk We follow her as she grows up amongst her new neighbours who I really enjoyed reading about They are, for the most part, really likeable characters whose outlook on life sometimes comes as a pleasant surprise, being somewhat at odds occasionally with what I was expecting I also enjoyed the parts of the story set in [...]

    2. I absolutely love family saga books set around the war years and I m excited to have discovered a new author in one of my favourite genres I am over the moon to find lots of other books that I can devour I loved this quote in the description Reading a Sheila Newberry book is like having dinner with your mother in her warm and cosy kitchen You can feel the love and care put into every juicy morsel Diane Allen, bestselling author of For the Sake of Her Family.It sums up how I felt.The times are de [...]

    3. I received an ARC from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review I m a sucker for novels that take place in England, particularly those that take place in the 1940 s Newberry s novel takes us from the dangers of the London bombings to a charming country village with secrets Engaging characters and story line, however the ending felt rushed An easy, enjoyable read.

    4. Disappointing.The middle of the book does not live up to its start It is a muddle of unbelievable events which rounds up with a disappointing confusing mushy end.

    5. Complete review available Bicycles and BlackberriesThe Second World War is a dominant topic in history classes at school, but the focus always lies with soldiers and the conditions overseas in Europe Newberry presents a story, centred around a single charcter for ease and continuity, that explores both urban and rural dynamics of everyday life, as influenced by the war in England The story was quaint much like the title, although that bore little real tie to the storyline and covered a significa [...]

    6. Set in the East End of London, 1939, just as the second world war is about to unfold, this is compelling story about evacuees The characters are beautifully forged and play out with a real draw for the reader This was a story I just didn t want to finish The plot twists and turns brilliantly and explores a wide range of emotions as it unfolds.This book was received as an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for my fair and honest review.

    7. I received a copy of this book for an honest review.This is a new author to me but I really liked this story, it is set in the East End in 1939 and it is a bit different to all the other books I have been reading of late There are some truly wonderful characters that I have come across in this book even though the story is mainly about Georgia, it does involve other people that are close to her and their stories A lovely read that I wont forget in a hurry.

    8. Set in the East End of London at the outbreak of war in 1939 A great story about evacuees So well written with strong characters A wonderful period setting an uplifting story A solid 4 read One to recommend to family friends.My thanks to the publisher NetGalley for this advance reader copy in exchange for my honest review.

    9. I won a copy of this book via First Reads.We really enjoyed this family saga set during and slightly after WWII Plenty of heartache, troubles and joy along the way following mainly female lead characters and their lives.It also had a satisfying ending.Looking forward to reading by this author who was previously unknown to us.

    10. Sweet story, well written, with good characters It s always interesting to read about the home front during WWII This novel, set in the East End, seemed particularly evocative of the period You will like this if you enjoy family stories set in the UK during this period or if you re just looking for a novel with a positive message THanks to Netgalley for the ARC.

    11. I enjoyed this book, and, the way the author, draws out all the members of the family, and, with the descriptions draws you into the time, also like the way the book concludes
