Jean Fullerton, the queen of the East End, returns with a wonderful new Christmas novel. Because in the darkest days of the Blitz, Christmas is more important than ever. With Christmas approaching, the Brogan family of London´s East End are braving the horrors of the Blitz. With the men away fighting for King and Country and the ever-present dangers of the German Luftwaffe´s nightly reign of death and destruction, the family must do all they can to keep a stiff upper lip. For Jo, the youngest of the Brogan sisters, the perils of war also offer a newfound freedom. Jo falls in love with Tommy, a man known for his dangerous reputation as much as his charm. But as the falling bombs devastate their neighbourhood and rationing begins to bite, will the Brogans manage to pull together a traditional family Christmas? And will Jo find the love and security she seeks in a time of such grave peril? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rosie Akerman.

Mr. Bangs has caught the spirit of the ´Christmas Carols,´ and phrased it in his own style, so well liked in America. Not in a long time have we had Christmas stories so good as ´The Conversion of Hetherington,´ ´The Child Who Had Everything But...´, ´Santa Claus and Little Billie,´ and ´The House of the Seven Santas´ - the four stories in this volume. Mr. Bangs´ sense of humor never fails, his diction is well liked, and in these tales he has woven a strain of pathos which is not unfitting. (Journal of Education, 1912) 1. Language: English.
