Language: English
Type: Large print
Publisher: Magna
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Standard print edition originally published: London: Orion Books, 2014 Pearl Street in Liverpool has already seen its share of drama and tragedy in the opening years of the War, but as the residents prepare for Christmas 1942, its spirit and friendship in adversity binds them closely together. Since her RAF husband was seriously injured, Eileen has worried about the growing distance between them. Why does Nick find every excuse to stay in London on his weekends off, not returning to his loving wife and gorgeous little boy in Liverpool? Lena Newton has longed for a baby of her own but, with her husband posted overseas with the Navy, it's looking unlikely. Her lonely days are brightened by visits to the cinema with her neighbour, Mr Ransome, until a familiar face returns to Pearl Street.

Note: Standard print edition originally published: London: Orion Books, 2015 It's 1925 and Patricia, Tara and Aideen couldn't be more excited about leaving Dublin with their father and heading for a new life in Liverpool. Yet it soon becomes clear that all is not as it seems, for the day after they arrive in England, Bernie hastily sweeps the girls onto a huge ocean liner heading to New York, leaving no forwarding address. When their father vanishes mid-way across the Atlantic, the grieving sisters prepare themselves for a new life in the big city, far from home, friends and family. For whatever their father was running from has every chance of catching up with the girls, unless they can do their best to build new lives in New York.

Book:Flora and Grace:2013
Author: Lee, Maureen
Year: 2013
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Orion
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: It's 1944 and Flora Knox is enjoying a spring morning in the Swiss mountains, waiting for a train. Having been educated in Switzerland, Flora has been unable to return home to the UK since the outbreak of war, much to her delight. As Flora watches, a cattle train draws closer to the station, pulling a fleet of slatted trucks behind. But the trucks don't contain animals. From within come the sounds of humans, groaning, pleading, on a desperate journey across the Swiss countryside. Horrified, Flora runs to the train as it slowly clatters through the station, and as she does so, a filthy bundle of rags is pushed out into her arms. Through the slats of the train, she hears a desperate plea: 'Take him. His name is Simon'. As the train disappears, Flora is left holding a tiny baby boy. Everything looks just the same as it did moments before - the sun, the sky, the station - but nothing will ever be the same again.
