Home for Christmas Summary


Home for Christmas by Annie Groves

A heart-warming story of love and friendship in wartime from the bestselling author of Where the Heart is and London Belles.

It's September 1940 and the London Blitz has begun. For the four girls living at No. 13 Article Row, life must go on, despite the nightly bombing raids.

Underground employee, Agnes, is working round the clock to deal with the huge influx of people seeking safety in her station, while Dulcie is trying hard to make peace with her mother.

Nurse Sally returns to Liverpool and gets a shocking reminder of the past, but this is pushed from her mind when a dreadful accident occurs.

As Christmas approaches, her friend Tilly meets a handsome young American called Drew. Could he be the one to mend her broken heart?

As the bombs continue to rain down on a wintery London, the girls do their best to create some Christmas cheer - but the only present they really want is to be home for Christmas.

She was the author of the Pride family series, Ellie Pride, Connie's Courage and Hettie of Hope Street, for which she drew upon her own family's history, picked up from listening to her grandmother's stories when she was a child.

These were followed by the Campion series, Across the Mersey, Daughters of Liverpool, The Heart of the Family, Where the Heart Is and When the Lights Go on Again, which are also based on recollections from members of her family, who come from the city of Liverpool.
