'Unputdownable' Western Telegraph
Opening in 1939, Lavender Road follows the lives of the people who live in one South London street through the first year of WW2.
Everyone suspects that the war will change their lives, perhaps for ever - mostly they are right.
Helen Carey’s characters are so real that they live on with you beyond the page. Warm, lively, enriching. Storytelling at it best.
