The Other Side of the Street (Lavender Road 5)

The Other Side of the Street (Lavender Road 5)

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STREET is an irresistible, romantic and heart-warming saga of south London’s women during the Second World War. ‘A delightful experience… I can thoroughly recommend it’ Ellie Dean

It’s 1944. Londoners are weary of air raids and rationing. But now, with rumours of an invasion of France, the tide of war seems to be turning. In Lavender Road, however, everyone still has challenges to face.

Young widow Louise Rutherford longs to make a new life for herself. When a glamorous American officer arrives at her factory to recruit volunteers for a secret project, she senses an opportunity, only to find her efforts hampered by ten-year-old war orphan, George Nelson.

Jen Carter’s relationship with theatrical producer Henry Keller hits a hurdle when an old flame reappears. And when V1 retaliation rockets start hitting London, her mother Joyce’s tentative romance is threatened too.

Will the war finally wear down the women of Lavender Road, or can love thrive even in the toughest of times?
