Lavender Road Publisher's Summary

Lavender Road boasts a pawnbroker, a pub, two rows of terraced working class homes, and, at one end, the big house owned by the local brewer. When war breaks out, the lives and fortunes of the families who live in Lavender Road are changed out of all recognition.

For Joyce it means a struggle to keep food on the family table; for Jen it may mean the end of her dream to become an actress; and for Pam there is the sickening seesaw of emotions as she fights attraction to her handsome lodger and a growing distance from a husband, who is judged not fit to enlist.

    It will take more than Hitler's Luftwaffe to break the spirit of the residents of Lavender Road. If courage, resilience and a sense of humour could win wars, the conflict would already be over. It's not all harmony, though. Nurse Molly Coogan and would-be actress Jen Carter certainly don't see eye to eye. Molly, despite hating the discipline of wartime hospital life, is unimpressed by Jen's prima donna ways while pretty Jen, unaware of Molly's secret heartache, can't resist taking her own personal frustrations out on Molly.
