The tension is rising for Peggy Reilly and the inhabitants of Cliffehaven as the planes continue to roar above the town and there is still no news of the long-awaited Allied invasion into France. There seems to be no end in sight of this war which has scattered her family and brought conflict right to the door of Beach View Boarding House, but Peggy cannot work miracles and the toll of the war is beginning to weigh on her slender shoulders.
Meanwhile, Ron Reilly has landed himself in hot water with his sweetheart, Rosie – and this time, his Irish charm will not be enough to get him out of trouble.
The war has forever changed the lives of Peggy’s loved ones, but with the promise of an Allied invasion comes the hope that her beloved husband and family will at last be coming home. It will take an enormous amount of spirit to keep that hope alive and bring harmony back to Beach View.

Welcome back Peggy Reilly and all your family and loved ones at Beach View Boarding House. This ongoing story of them coping with the awful events of WW2 is fabulous. You feel you actually know all the characters so well. Peggy’s father-in-law Ron is a lovable rogue who got in serious trouble with his love Rosie. Her husband Jim fighting in Burma and living the horrors of facing the Japanese. It just shows how resilient all the people were. I couldn’t put the book down.
The Author, Ellie Dean. This writer never lets you down with her stories. Every character and location is so well written about. There must be a lot of research done. Another winning book from her and I look forward to the next episode
