Publisher's Summary

The village of Burracombe is looking forward to the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, but the year of 1953 is to prove a year of heartbreak as well as celebration.

While Stella Simmons begins to plan her wedding, her sister Maddy is only just coming to terms with the loss of her own fiancé; Val and Luke Ferris are wondering if they will ever become parents, and Hilary Napier wonders if love will ever find her.

The Tozer family also face anxiety. As grandmother Minnie fights for her life, Tom and Joanna's premature twins battle with their own crisis. Tensions abound over who's arranging the celebrations, children run amok and, in the midst of it all, romance comes from a quite unexpected direction.

Not what I was expecting

The story overall was good. I did enjoy the narrator. My only complaint was I had a hard time keeping up with all the different characters.

So depressing

The whole book was depressing to be honest. I really enjoyed Storm over Burracombe which is why I bought this, but goodness me, it lingered way too long on the misery aspect. If you like to be depressed or if you want to follow the series in sequence, then read this, otherwise skip to the next, hopefully it is a bit more cheerful than this.
