Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Way We Were by Sinead Moriarty, read by Robert Portal, Rachel Louise Miller, Alison McKenna and Daniel Weyman. Alice and Ben are a couple like any other bound together by love, work, children, familiarity, and a shared sense of purpose. Arguing about the usual things, too - in-laws, whose career is more important, which of them is a soft touch with the children, who hates change and who craves it.
Brenda Stuart returns to her late husband's home devastated by his loss only to find herself accused of bestowing favours upon the Germans. Life has been difficult for her over the war, having been held in an internment camp in France simply because of her nationality. Thankful that her son at least was safe in the care of his grandmother, she now finds that she has lost him, too, and her life is in turmoil. Prue, her beloved sister-in-law, is also a war widow but has now fallen in love with an Italian POW.
