This is the second novel that I have read. I was very happy to have found Peggy, Jim, Ron and Mrs Finch once again at Cliff haven. So far they have managed to be safe while bombs pour down on London and other towns around. I'm off to read number three..Keep Smiling Through..I'm anxious to meet Peggy once again in her kitchen!
