Such a charming read!
‘Christmas with the East End Angels,’ is a story full of heartache and uplifting moments of enduring the war years in London.
Focusing on main characters Frankie, Bella and Winnie, the reader is enveloped by the horrors of life during the war years, and how life is so precious and horribly unpredictable.
The sadness of loss is so paramount, and yet compared to the hope that powers each individual forward, one feels so drawn to the characters.
A compelling read for anyone wanting to experience the lives of such inspiring and unsung heroines of the war.
Rosie Hendry lives by the sea in Norfolk with her husband, two children, chickens and a snake. She’s worked in a variety of jobs from fruit picking, waitressing, teaching and as a research scientist but has always loving reading and writing. Starting off writing short stories for women’s magazines, her stories have gradually become longer as her children have grown bigger.
Listening to her father’s tales of life during the Second World War sparked Rosie’s interest in this period and she’s especially intrigued by how women’s lives changed during the war years. She loves researching further, searching out gems of real-life events which inspire her writing.
When she’s not working, Rosie enjoys walking along the beach, reading and is grateful for the fact that her husband is a much better cook than her.
