    One thought on “The Girls of Mulberry Lane”

    1. This kind of book takes me back to my roots where I first got a love of reading. Heart warming stories with some what I call 'umph and emotion' along with the era of prewar, war time when life was more friendlier with neighbors and everyone helped each other no matter what troubles you had of your own. This author very quickly breathed life into her characters so that the reader can feel them, live among them and be a part of what is going on within the pages, that sure is a talent. Peggy and La [...]

    2. I really enjoy this genre/era and Rosie Clarke is an author who I feel describes it so well and brings the story to life. The close community feel where everyone helps each other and chats daily is portrayed through the Girls Of Mulberry Lane as we follow the diverse characters hardships, ups and downs through the war time in Londons East End. The author writes well and the great characterisation is evident as you find yourself turning every page quickly eagerly waiting to see and caring as to w [...]

    3. A really well-written wartime saga set in a small neighbourhood within the capital city which involves families, friends, businesses and neighbours as the country makes the transition from peacetime to the start of the second world war.This is a period which has always fascinated me - being too young to have experienced it - and I love all the small details of daily life. This book is very descriptive, bringing all the characters alive and concentrating on the people and how they cope with the d [...]

    4. I love books set around the war years and Rosie Clarke has created a wonderful cast of characters from Mulberry Lane. You quickly get to know them all and feel as though you live amongst them and are filling your wicker basket in the shop ready to go home and prepare the dinner!Peggy owns the pub with her husband Lawrence. He was never the same since he came back from the first world war- and although he is in his 40's he is dreading being called up for the approaching war. They have two childre [...]

    5. The Girls of Mulberry Lane written by Rosie Clarke tells the story of the women who live on Mulberry Lane, we first meet each of the women of strength and loyalty prior to the beginning of the Second World War.This is one very well written book and one I am happy to recommend. It tells the story of the residents of Mulberry Lane and their daily lives prior and during the first year of the Second World War. The one main character for me was Peggy, the loyal wife of the pub landlord, her love for [...]

    6. London is preparing for a war, with the drumbeats on the horizon in 1938, Mulberry Lane and her residents in London’s East End have just started to find some sort of normalcy in life, but after the last war, nothing is ever quite the same. Spanning a 2 year period, the story focuses on Maureen, stuck caring for (and managed by) an overbearing father, she’s lost much of the hope she had in love and its power to transform her life. Returning to Mulberry Lane we also meet Rory, love of Maureen [...]

    7. The Girls of Mulberry Lane by Rosie Clarke is pleasant departure from my typical contemporary romance/ women's fiction reading material. Drawn to the WWII time period, London as the setting, and the potential angst, I found myself escaping into this story. It certainly won't be the last Rosie Clarke book I read. The story is told from a few different points of view which kept it very captivating. Peggy is the 40's- ish old pub owner with an 18 year old daughter Janet who has fallen in love and w [...]

    9. I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for a honest review. I enjoyed this book from start to finish, there were sad bits in , but everything came right in the end. I would recommend this book .

    10. Saga writer extraordinaire Rosie Clarke kicks off her fantastic new series with The Girls of Mulberry Lane, a gritty, gutsy and compelling tale set in 1930s London that is simply perfect for fans of Donna Douglas, Nadine Dorries and Ellie Dean.The dark clouds of war are gathering in 1938, but in Mulberry Lane, London, the inhabitants of this street are waging war and fighting their own battles. Three years ago, Maureen Jackson had been head over heels in love with the man of her dreams, Rory. Ma [...]

    11. Have I ever mentioned how much I love a family saga set around the war years!? Well, Rosie Clarke is the queen of these and I’m over the moon that she has begun a new series which will keep me enthralled for the duration I’m sure. The Girls of Mulberry Lane is absolutely everything you could ask for in a book like this.Characters have such depth that the reader is immediately absorbed and rooting for them. The involvement in their everyday lives is captivating and slightly addictive, it’s [...]

    12. 4 stars. I rarely read historical fiction so this book was a refreshing change for me. Set in Londons East End at the beginning on WW2, we meet the various characters of Mulberry Lane. Peggy, who owns the pub with her husband Lawrence appears to take on the role of matriarch in the community (and amongst the women). She is a strong lady who works hard for her family and values her friends. But she senses something is up with her husband and feels them drifting apart. Can their marriage survive t [...]

    13.

    14. The Girls of Mulberry LaneThe Girls of Mulberry Lane apparently is part of a series, yet it is a complete, free-standing story and a good one. It takes place in London during WWII. It does not portray the actual combat but lightly touches upon the heartache left on its wake. The incessant bombing of London is also skimmed over, but we are made aware of some of the effects of the daily air raids. The story is told from the viewpoint of the home front and the people contending with the losses of f [...]

    15. A story set in the backdrops of WWII in the East End of London. It revolves around the main characters, Peggy and Maureen's life; of their family and life before and during the deadliest war. Unlike other war-fictions, this book doesn't draw an exact picture of life during the war, but an outline. The author focuses on the character's lives and lets us see the world from their perspective. You will find them worrying on lower turnover of stock, broken hearts, a hopeless future and even being dis [...]

    16. A wonderful war-time story of the lives of ordinary people living on Mulberry Lane in England. Meet Peggy, married to Lawrence who is fighting his own demons from a past war. He's terrified he'll be called up even though he's well past the age. Their daughter Janet is in love with Mike and even though her father forbids the relationship, Janet runs off with Mike. Poor Peggy is left holding her family together.Also on Mulberry Lane you'll meet the poor, near spinster Maureen whose overbearing fat [...]

    17. This story starts with some of the residents of Mulberry Lane.Peggy who is married to Lawrence and have two children Janet (who is 19) and Pip who is still at school, they have a nice life and own their own pub, though Lawrence is plagued by the past events of World War I which plays quite a part in their storyline. Are they all happy together or has it just become an habit??And then there is Maureen who run the local shop and lives at home with her demanding and demeaning father, where has Maur [...]

    18. This is a good old fashioned family saga written by a born storyteller. Nothing is neat or clean for these women. It's 1938 and like It or not, the fathers rule the roost. Maureen, Janet, and Peggy all are better than they think of themselves. Each of them is aching for love and yet are stymied by circumstances beyond their control. This will make you think about how much women's lives have improved, especially with regard to financial independence and the ability to make choices for oneself. Th [...]

    19. What a brilliant story this is, again a new author for me but I will definitely be reading more of her books. Set around the time of the Second World War this story follows the inhabitants of a typical west end street full of lots of people who have brilliant characters. The characters are so alive you can feel them leaping off the page as you read.Can highly recommend this one.

    20. In the beginning I wasn’t sure if I would like the book; the writing was so simplistic and there are editing errors. There were also some repetitive phrases. By the end however, I really enjoyed the characters and their development. I look forward to the next in the series.

    21. Great storyI really enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book and following them in their daily lives. This book has left me wanting to know more. what happens to them next.I look forward to reading g more by Rosie Clarke in the future

    22. Mulberry lane Another great read from Rosie Clarke quite light hearted which is nice after heavy reading and will also be reading the next in the series defiitelywortha 5Star review .

    23. Good read based in London just as the war starts. Interesting characters and plots. Look forward to reading the next ones.

    24. It was a good read but very little was resolved at the end because it's book 1 of a series, which was a bit disappointing. I wanted a little more of an ending, even if a few things were left open.

    25. A good readGripping story enjoyed the true rendition of war time London huh jbbn hi mum and 30th to the 5th and

    26. This was an okay novel about two (or maybe three?) women in the East End of London just before and then during the Second World War. Nice read. Nothing special.

    27. Engaging storyline Looking forward to the sequel. Strong characters that all have an interesting path. Male and female. There is great scene setting too.
