The Other Side of the Street

(2017)
(The fifth book in the Lavender Road series)
A novel by

 
It's 1944, four years into the Second World War. The British are weary of air raids and rationing. But now, with rumours of an Allied invasion of France, the tide of war finally seems to be turning. In London's Lavender Road, however, two young women find that the war seems determined to throw a spanner in their plans for future happiness.

Young war-widow Louise Rutherford longs to make a new life for herself away from her disapproving parents. When an attractive American officer arrives at her factory to recruit volunteers for a secret project, she leaps at the opportunity, but soon discovers that things aren't going to be anywhere near as easy as she thought.

Actress Jen Carter's relationship with theatrical producer Henry Keller hits a hurdle when a former boyfriend unexpectedly reappears, and when V1 retaliation rockets start hitting London, even Jen's mother's tentative romantic dreams also come under threat.

In this atmospheric Second World War novel, hugely popular British author, Helen Carey, brings to vivid life the robust spirit of the war years.
