LONDON CALLING is a poignant, warm-hearted and engaging saga of Clapham, south London’s women during the Second World War, for readers of Kate Thompson, Annie Murray and Katie Flynn.

It will take more than Hitler’s Luftwaffe to break the spirit of the residents of Lavender Road. If courage and resilience could win wars, the conflict would already be over.

It’s not all harmony, though. Nurse Molly Coogan and would-be actress Jen Carter certainly don’t see eye to eye. Molly, despite hating the discipline of wartime hospital life, is unimpressed by Jen’s prima donna ways. Jen, unaware of Molly’s secret heartache, can’t resist taking her own frustrations out on Molly. It’s just as well that no one knows what challenges lie ahead…

From stolen glasses in the Flag and Garter to fancy dinners in the heart of the West End, from a desperate battle for survival on a hospital ward to a torpedo hitting its target in the Mediterranean Sea, LONDON CALLING takes readers into a world of ordinary people living extraordinary lives.


Praise for Helen Carey's Lavender Road novels 'Written with a lightness of touch, an emotional integrity and an historical accuracy which has brought her respect from critics and readers alike

Sparkling storytelling
Evening Standard
Having read and re-read her previous books, I've been awaiting this new Helen Carey novel for a good long while and am thrilled to say that the wait was ( more than) well worth it... All the hallmarks of novel writing at its very best - strong characters, wonderful plot lines, thorough research and vivid imagination
Amazon Reader
The emotions and behaviours of the characters are realistically represented and the reader is quickly drawn to wanting to follow the drama and discover the outcome. Hope we don't have to wait as long for the next one... I want to know what happens next!
