Look for the Silver Lining

(2006)
A novel by

 
During the dark days of the Second World War, when Nellie marries a man who does not meet with her mother's approval she is cut off from her family. With her soldier husband Teddy away, a pregnant Nellie is forced to face alone the horrors of the Blitz. Only when a bomb destroys the family home is she reunited with her younger sisters, Babs and Lottie. With the three of them homeless, Nellie is forced to get in touch with their paternal grandfather. He takes them in but at what cost to Nellie's unborn child? She longs for Teddy's return but he is killed in battle. Bitterly angry and grief stricken, the church is the last place Nellie would turn to, but her brother turns to her for help in tending an unconscious man, who apparently has sought the sanctuary of St Joseph's, she complies with his request. When the man disappears as mysteriously as he came, Nellie thinks little more of and instead she seeks solace for her grief in working with children in a newly opened day nursery. But the end of the war sees the reappearance of the mysterious stranger, and a new challenge for Nellie.
