The story of Alice and her friends continues, yay!

Oh wow, this book was quite the rollercoaster! I was cheering Alice on, all the way, when she was doing it so tough.
Terry is finally back from the war, but is taking some time adjusting to being back on civvy street. Of course, Cathy doesn't know him and it is difficult for the two of them to bond, initially. Alice also has responsibility for her brother Brian but he is doing really well at school and between the lovely Granny Lomax and various good friends, Alice works at both Lewis's and the Legion, in order to keep the wolf from the door. And then there is Jack, a trusted friend - but is he really what he seems?
I loved the descriptions of the everyday lives of the characters. There were some brands I had never heard of and after looking them up, I have a new understanding of what life was like in Liverpool just after the war ended. Mention of historical events was really appreciated and it added to the flavour of the story.
Enjoyed this one and looking forward to reading the next one!
4 stars from me.
