Book cover - The Married Girls

Book Description

Wynsdown, 1949. In the small Somerset village of Wynsdown, Charlotte Shepherd is happily married to farmer Billy. She arrived from Germany on the Kindertransport as a child during the war and now feels settled in her adopted home.

Meanwhile, the squire’s fighter pilot son, Felix, has returned to the village with a fiancée in tow. Daphne is beautiful, charming… and harbouring secrets. After meeting during the war, Felix knows some of Daphne’s past, but she has worked hard to conceal that which could unravel her carefully built life.

For Charlotte, too, a dangerous past is coming back in the shape of fellow refugee, bad boy Harry Black. Forever bound by their childhoods, Charlotte will always care for him, but Harry’s return disrupts the village quiet and it’s not long before gossip spreads.

The war may have ended, but for these girls, trouble is only just beginning.

As a kid I was obsessed with The Wizard of Oz. Saturday afternoons we used to love to watch The Wizard of Oz with Judy Garland. It was one of those family favourites that you can watch over and over again.

So when I was presented with the opportunity to read and review The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum it was a given! No way was I going to refuse this one!

The Morning Sidekick Journal Review

It’s beautiful to hold. Hardback with fantastic thick pages, the feel of a quality product. It has one of those great bookmarks, so you won’t lose your place and an elastic band to keep it closed. There is the option of having a pdf version as well, so you can fill in on your laptop, if that’s the better option for you.
