The second last book in the series and it's definitely winding down.
All the girls that have been staying with Peggy Reilly in the boarding house are making plans and moving on. Ron now lives at the pub with Rosie which means Harvey has also moved out so the house is getting quieter all the time.
However, the odd get together and knees up are still happening as there are quite a few weddings in this one and Peggy is expecting her family to come back from Somerset where they were evacuated to at the beginning of the war but things don't run smoothly on this front.
There still seems to be plenty of food and drink when there's a party which rankled a bit with me. After all these are still days of war and as far as I can remember rationing didn't end completely until 1952.
There's a lot of crying and 'eyes welling up' which is a pet hate of mine in novels. It was all a bit sickly sweet at times.
I enjoyed it though as I have loved the series. Peggy is still my favorite character and I hope she'll get her reward in the last book, due out in January.
