Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated sequel to The Girl with No Name, a heart-warming family saga from bestselling author, Diney Costeloe.

The war is over, but trouble is brewing....

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

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 one that 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.

disappointing

the story lacked a purpose. The title had little to do with the actual story and it was a shame that the same narrator as girl with no name wasn't used on this book as the pronunciation of Lezza in the first book then Lisa in this one was noticable on an audio book, it's almost as if 2 different authors wrote these books. Lezza was strong and confident in the first book and came across as a little dimwitted in this one. The original Lezza I'm sure would have gently corrected her children's grammar and not just let them have their own way. The Harry story line was disappointing and I can't believe he would have just gone to Australia and never contacted his friend again. There are too many little inconsitancies to truly be called a sequel. it was predictable and frustrating.

Fabulous Sequal

I hope there is more to come. The accents and gender/age voices were off putting compared to Book one, but was still a great listen.

Great sequel

I loved this story, but didn't enjoy the narration. Using the original would've be far better. It completely changed the personality of the characters.

Good story with narration disconnect.

Decent sequel but would be far better as an audio book I'd narrated by the same person as the first book. Different voices and accents makes for an uneasy start to the story.

Couldn't finish it

I loved the first book in this series but I found this one incredibly dull and missing all the charm of the first. Didn't finish it

One hell of a disappointment

Having listened to and thoroughly enjoyed “the girl with no name”, I could not wait to get started on the sequel, Married Girls. I cannot believe that both books were written by the same author! I listened and listened and listened and finally gave up on on this book. First of all, it is a real shame that the same narrator was not used for both books. The masculine “voices” in this book were risible! The narration was not a patch on its predecessor. But most important of all, the story was beyond boring. I can always tell when an audiobook is good because I don’t fall asleep to it LOL. With this book I could not stay awake! The storyline is bland, insipid and BORING. Because I enjoyed the first book so much I stuck with this until I just could take no more. What a disappointment!

The chronicles continue

Another great continuation from the girl with no name.

This book has great characters, it is set in post war England and has good story lines.
It reminds me slightly of the Clifton chronicles by Jeffrey Archer.
This book can be read in its own but is better read as the second book in the series.
I will look forward to the next instalment.

Not that gripping a story line.

I was a little disappointed to the story line after reading the reviews, I think some people have rated this book too high and I think I've been generous to give it 3 stars.

Ties up loose ends from the first book

Having integrating twists and turns of events this book does keep you reading. The first book is a must read to get the maximum enjoyment and understanding of the charters and storyline. This book is very much a romantic novel with brief encounters of lust and erotic behaviours.

Not as good as the first book

The story was ok but it was the voices..... they were dreadful. The main narration was ok. Why did you have to use different narrators?? I think I will read the next book rather than listen to those whining voices!

Fabulous

This book comes after The Girl with no Name I couldn’t wait to start it after finishing the first one. Again it was very well written and was an excellent story but sad in parts. The narrator wasn’t quite as good as the first book but did a good job. I suspect that listening straight after the first book. I’d become so used to the characters and the way they were portrayed by the narrator of the first book. It’d be nice to see a third book but suspect that it will not happen as it came to a nice conclusion.
