It's 1943 and despite the dangers, Evie Yeo's best friend Sukie and sister Pattie are leaving Devon behind and heading to London to work in a hotel. With Sukie working 'upstairs' on reception and Pattie a chambermaid 'downstairs', they see and share all the different comings and goings of the guests. From the military officials in town for meetings at the war office, to people from the theatre helping to bring joy to the capital in wartime, an eclectic mix of people come together at this small hotel in Covent Garden. As the festive season comes ever closer, can the girls find a way to make this Christmas their best one ever?

Language: English
Type: Large print
Publisher: Magna
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Standard print edition originally published: London: Orion As a new year begins and the world is at war, Evie Yeo is turning over a new leaf. Her nearest and dearest in the little Devon village of Lymbridge, the war effort for the boys on the front, and her class of infant pupils will be getting all of her attention this year and nothing will soften her resolve. Though rations are slim, and work is hard with the men away, Evie knows she's lucky to have her friends and family around her - even if they don't always agree on each other's choices in fashion, hobbies or love. They have supported her through a broken heart more than once so she knows they'll stick together even when there are new suitors, new babies or new jobs to contend with. But as the snow falls, Evie realises it might be harder than she thought to put the past behind her and find her happy ending.

Note: Standard print edition originally published: London: Orion Books, 2016 The second in a trilogy of World War Two sagas featuring Evie, a new teacher in a Devon primary school, and a supporting cast of characters destined to become as familiar as old friends. After having her heart broken not once but twice, Evie Yeo has sworn off men and is focusing on her job teaching at the village school. Her class is much bigger now that evacuees have come to Lymbridge and if she thought her previous boss - the mother of her scoundrel of an ex-fiance - was bad, she's in for a tough term as new headmaster, Mr Bassett, is already proving to be more difficult. It's a busy time for all in the village as Linda is getting married and there's a dress to make, Tricia's baby is due any day now, and Evie is determined to help raise the spirits of the men in the recuperation hospital.

Note: Standard print edition originally published: London: Orion Books, 2016 After discovering that her fiance, Timmy, has been less than faithful, Evie is faced with a dilemma of the heart - she must try to mend their relationship or otherwise cut all ties and move on. Moving on from a first love is never easy though and it's further complicated by the fact that Timmy's mother is the headmistress at Evie's school and can't hear a bad word said against him. Luckily, she has two sisters and a close circle of friends to help her through the tough times and as the war brings British RAF officers and American GIs to the once quiet and calm village life is going to be anything but dull.
