I am very pleased to bring you The Women of Mulberry Lane on day two of Rosie Clarke’s lovely blog tour!
The war is nearly over – or is it?
The women of Mulberry Lane anxiously wait for news. Peggy doesn’t know if she’ll ever again see Able, the American father of her twins, while a very odd letter from estranged husband, Laurie threatens to set the cat among the pigeons. Rose can’t stop loving Jimmy while Tom can’t stop loving her. Will Gordon never again be the man he once was? Can he be a proper husband to Maureen and if he can’t, what will become of their marriage? The men, women and children of Mulberry Lane fight on with indomitable spirit, as the endgame of the Second World War enters its most deadly phase.
The Women of Mulberry Lane is the fifth and final book in Rosie Clarke’s Mulberry Lane series. This series follows a number of women as they find themselves on the streets of London, keeping their homes and families running in the midst of the Blitz, all whilst awaiting news of their loved ones who are out fighting.
Peggy, the landlady at the Pig & Whistle, is a central female figure in Mulberry Lane. She has experienced heartache and pain throughout the war yet still strives to help anyone in need. She desperately awaits news of her American soldier, Able, father to her now toddler twins, but is shocked to receive a letter from her estranged husband Laurie. Maureen, another strong woman on the lanes, finds herself trying to help her husband Gordon who has struggled with his life after he was injured at war whilst she also looks after their growing family. Finally, Rose, the new woman on the lanes introduced in New Arrivals at Mulberry Lane,, finds herself waiting for her fiancée Jimmy while he is away fighting, all whilst Tom watches, loving her from a distance.
World War Two is in its final stages, but love, loss, hope and tragedy are all still ever present on Mulberry Lane as the women all strive to keep their families and friends safe and together. The Women of Mulberry Lane is a fitting end to this wonderful series; I have enjoyed following these strong, amazing women on their journey through one of the most brutal times in our history. I cannot recommend this series enough; if you like historical fiction then these five novels are for you. If you just enjoy reading about strong, courageous women then these five novels are still for you.
