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.

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.

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

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 as good as the the 1st but as expected. Found change in names and the men gaining really husky deep voices frustrating asif they were drunk! However the book was great still and lovely story worth a credit!

Such a good story, sometimes sad & often Happy.
well done, am so enjoying Diney's book. I am wondering if there is a follow up from this book. Narrative good also.

I read the first one and was delighted to find the story continued. I hope there is more to come from Diney as I have been hooked. Finished the book in 2 days. Great detail and the narrator did a good job.

Not as good as the first book
This is a more gentle book than the first, although in the last 4 hours the tone changes somewhat (had to turn the book off sharply when it came on automatically on the school run!). Interesting to catch up with some of the characters but glad I got it in a 2 for 1 would have felt a credit wasted otherwise. Not a bad book but an unremarkable one.

Another great storyline from Diney Costeloe!
I was initially disappointed the same narrator didn't read both books 1 & 2, so I had to wait a month to get the first narrator's character voices out of my head! However, it was lovely to follow Charlotte's life a little further, as sad as it was at times, but loved the way Diney tied up character loose ends (German fighter pilot's return) & the comeuppance for others (Daphne). The book's title was very weak & nothing of substance to reflect such a great storyline.

Great follow up to The Girl with no Name. Excellent narrator, thoroughly enjoyed this book.

A wonderful story, beautifully narrated.
I loved everything about this audiobook. I felt so connected to all the characters that I really did not want the story to end. I loved the pace of the novel; the portrayal of the characters; the descriptions; the period detail and the excellent accents of the narrator. These really brought the characters to life and made the story even more engrossing. What a wonderful audiobook! I enjoyed every moment.

I really enjoyed this book
It was a very lovely story. I enjoyed it so much. A story of the war I did not know about.
