ROSIE’S WAR Kay Brellend
Rosie Gardiner is ashamed of the vain and cocky girl she used to be – it brought her nothing but trouble. Now she’s a single mum, raising her daughter, Hope, while trying to give the gossips a wide berth – they’d give their ration books to know who fathered the child. Meanwhile the Blitz may be over and Hitler on the run, but that hasn’t stopped him launching his secret weapon on London’s jaded citizens. Rosie’s father wants to take Hope away from danger, but little does Rosie know he has his own reasons for clearing off. For Rosie, trouble never seems very far away . . .
