Publisher's Summary

Lavender Road boasts a pawnbroker, a pub, two rows of terraced working class homes, and, at one end, the big house owned by the local brewer. When war breaks out, the lives and fortunes of the families who live in Lavender Road are changed out of all recognition.

For Joyce it means a struggle to keep food on the family table; for Jen it may mean the end of her dream to become an actress; and for Pam there is the sickening seesaw of emotions as she fights attraction to her handsome lodger and a growing distance from a husband, who is judged not fit to enlist.

Not good -wanted to erase stars that I mistakenly clicked

This was rather juvenile & not much of a story-I don’t give up on a book easily but this one has no appeal for me-couldn’t listen very long-thx

Excellent!!

One of the best novels about the start of WWII I’ve ever listened to! Ms. Annie Aldington has the voices spot on. I truly enjoyed this & can’t wait to hear the next novel.
