Exciting new series from Rosie Clarke

The Girls of Mulberry Lane is the first in an exciting new series from Rosie Clarke set in London in the lead-up to the Second World War.

1938, Mulberry Lane, London. War is looming, but on Mulberry Lane there are different battles being fought...

Maureen Jackson is a prisoner of her father’s blackmail. Three years earlier, she’d been hoping to marry Rory, the man of her dreams. However, after her mother’s death, she was left to care for her overbearing father. Now Rory is back in London with a pregnant wife in tow to remind Maureen of the life that should have been hers.

As war threatens, Janet Ashley hopes to marry her sweetheart Mike, but her father refuses to grant them his blessing. Defying his wishes, Janet finds herself pregnant and her mother Peggy is determined to hold her family together at all costs.

Will the girls of Mulberry Lane manage to snatch happiness before the darkness of World War II descends?

Advanced NetGalley buzz:

I love books set around the war years and Rosie Clarke has created a wonderful cast of characters from Mulberry Lane. You quickly get to know them all and feel as though you live amongst them and are filling your wicker basket in the shop ready to go home and prepare the dinner whilst experiencing the start of rationing and how that would affect the home front... I can’t wait to read the next book in this series! Kim Feasey

A really well-written wartime saga set in a small neighbourhood within the capital city... This is the first in a new series and whilst there is scope to continue the story, I really appreciated that all the loose ends were tied up - be it loosely, so they can be unravelled and continued - as I do so hate it when a book leaves me hanging. No such worries here as this is a full and complete novel, whilst still being part of a series. Rosie Clarke writes a compelling saga, and I shall certainly be watching out for the next volume .. in fact, I wouldn't miss it! A really satisfying and fulfilling read, thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommended. Grace J

What a beautiful story. Loads of laughter and tears. Highly recommend it to everyone! Brid Corcoran Belinda Munro
