Publisher's Summary

February 1941. Julie Harris is working in London’s East End as a midwife when a bombing raid destroys her family and the house she grew up in. All she has left is her motherless baby nephew William. Determined to uphold her promise to her sister to keep William safe until his father, Bill, returns from the war, she accepts a post as a midwife in Cliffehaven on the south-coast of England. Here they are taken under the wing of the Reilly family at the Beach View boarding house. But all too soon Julie learns that Bill is ‘missing in action’ and William falls dangerously ill.

As she begins the long vigil by William’s beside, she fears she will lose the little boy she has grown to love as her own…

    "Excellent war time series"

    This is the 4th book in the series that I've listened to , I love the way Annie Aldington brings the characters alive. The recurring characters now feel like old friends that you want the best for.
    It really brings the reality of living through daily air raids and how scary it really must have been
    Excellent books can't wait to start the next one

    "Disappointing"

    I quite liked the first few books in the Beach View Boarding House series, but unlike the first 3 books, I found the characters in this story to be very flat and two dimensional with none of the depth and charm of the earlier books. The plot seemed forced, lacked flow and consisted of far, far, far too much exposition.

    Annie Aldington's reading of the story wasn't horrible, but she did have an odd habit of pausing in the middle of sentences and her level tone just accentuated the flat writing.

    Overall, I found this book really disappointing. I kept hoping it would improve, but sadly it never did so. I was cringing right up to the end and I'm afraid it has put me off the series entirely.
