A heart-warming family saga! Perfect for fans of Lucinda Riley, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Tracy Chevalier and Fiona Valpy.
’The winter of war is over and gone. Still I must hope for a lasting spring…’
On a May afternoon in 1945, Evelyn Fawley waits in a Manchester teashop for a man to walk through the door.
A man she hasn’t seen for nearly two years. Her husband coming home from the war.
As she waits her memory roams back to her life before the start of the Second World War.
She reflects on her family life and the constant threat of danger that was brewing on the horizon.
And then on those dreadful years when those she loves were sent to fight.
Her story is one of fractured families, steadfast friendships and broken affairs. But will the man who returns to her still be the same man who she fell in love with?
A Lasting Spring is a compelling saga of happiness and heartache by Jean Stubbs.
