Louisa is 15 and living a contented, happy life in London. The Second World War is threatening their peace of mind. Will they all have the strength to survive?

Jacqueline Carpenter is from Essex and is married with a grown-up son and daughter. These days she spends a lot of her time in Spain, where she adores the weather, the delicious healthy food and gorgeous people.

Her favourite pastimes are walking along the beach, chatting and dancing (badly!).

  • Great story , couldnt put the book down.

    What a wonderful story set in the 2nd World War. Tells the story of how women coped whilst the men were at war. The story really flows and I just couldn’t put the book down. A great debut from Jacqueline Carpenter. Can’t wait for the next book to be published.

  • Lesley Eburne

    Just read this whilst in hospital, just my genre. Loved it from beginning to end .factual and believable. More please.

  • Beverley Clark

    Fantastically written debut novel. The characters are very believable and likeable and their stories really draw you into their lives. Historically accurate and hard to put down. I can't wait for the sequel.

    You have a lot to answer for. Addictive reading but OMG! I cried on the flight home from the UK reading Louisa.

    Brilliant book. Enjoyed reading loads.

  • Claire King

    From the moment I started reading this lovely book, I was hooked. Louisa is a great character who is a strong yet vulnerable lady with a heart of gold. I can’t wait for book number two. Well done Jacqueline carpenter and hurry up, please.
