Publisher's Summary

The war has had a devastating effect on the Sweet family with young Charlie Sweet, lost at sea, presumed dead and bombs falling on nearby Bristol.

Still there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon in the form of Mary Sweet's upcoming wedding to her Canadian beau. But even that has failed to rouse their father from his grief. But in London a baby has been found in a bombed out house, sheltered in the arms of his dead mother. A child to make life worth living again....

Entertaining

The writer really captures the feel oft he period, but I confess the romantic aspects of these stories feel a bit flat to me. I like the Sweet sisters, but they are more interesting to me single.

I like the idea of baking and cooking in wartime and the author really explores this area well. I will pick up the next one, despite the boring romance.
