Publisher's Summary

As Britain stands alone against a monstrous enemy, the inhabitants of Pearl Street face hardship and heartbreak with courage and humour. The war touches each of them in a different way: for Annie Poulson, a widow, it means never-ending worry when her twin boys are called up and sent to France; Sheila Reilly's husband, Cal, faces the terror of U-Boat attacks; Eileen Costello is liberated from a bitter, loveless marriage when her husband is sent to Egypt and she goes to work in a munitions factory - and falls in love. And Jessica Fleming, down on her luck, is forced to return to the street she'd hoped never to see again.

Romance?

I was expecting a WW 2 Romance since it was in the Romance package. That isn't what i got. Instead it was a historical (fiction) story about several people and their families. It was more descriptive of these people and what happened to them during the war years. If it weren't fiction, I would have called it a documentary type book. Since it wasn't what expected or wanted I didn't finish the book. I might have enjoyed it IF it was what I wanted. However, I expected a WW 2 romance and couldn't enjoy this book.
