Today it is my stop on the final day of the blog tour for a Reunion at Mulberry Lane by Rosie Clarke.
It’s always exciting when we get to revisit Mulberry Lane. A Reunion at Mulberry Lane is the sixth book in this fabulous series, and I’ve been fortunate enough to read and review them all!
A Reunion at Mulberry Lane is set in 1949. The war is over, and the women of Mulberry Lane are working to rebuild their lives with their families.
Peggy is settled in Devon with her adoring husband Able and her nine year old twins. When Fay insists she wants to figure skate, Peggy realises that in order for her daughter to follow her dreams she may have to relocate back to London. Whilst her son Pip and his wife Sheila would welcome them back, she is worried about her daughter Janet who is dealing with her own issues. A visit over Christmas to Mulberry Lane is just what Peggy needs to work out where her family should settle.
It was so good to revisit the ladies of Mulberry Lane and see where life has taken them after the war. Peggy is of course the matriarch of Mulberry Lane, where she has been sorely missed these past few years. But it was also great to find out where Maureen, Janet and Rose are in their lives. As expected, it is not plain sailing for any of them as life throws each of them curveballs. In the spirit of the wartime East End though, these women all come together to support each other as they have many times before.
I loved this novel, and I love this series. Whilst you could read A Reunion at Mulberry Lane as a standalone, personally I would recommend that you read the whole series, starting with The Girls of Mulberry Lane. Doing that will give you the opportunity to really get to know these women as they each develop into the thoughtful and supportive women that they are in A Reunion at Mulberry Lane.
Thank you to Rosie Clarke, Boldwood Books and Rachel at Rachels Random Resources for inviting me to be a part of this blog tour, and for providing me with a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
