V for Victory Summary

V for Victory: A warm and witty novel by the Sunday Times bestseller by Lissa Evans

'A book to be treasured and returned to again and again' The Independent
'Funny, moving and utterly life-enhancing' Daily Mail
With caustic wit and artful storytelling, Lissa Evans elegantly summons a time when the world could finally hope to emerge from the chaos of war.
___
It's late 1944. Hitler's rockets are slamming down on London with vicious regularity and it's the coldest winter in living memory. Allied victory is on its way, but it's bloody well dragging its feet.
In a large house next to Hampstead Heath, Vee Sedge is just about scraping by, with a herd of lodgers to feed, and her young charge Noel ( almost fifteen ) to clothe and educate. When she witnesses a road accident and finds herself in court, the repercussions are both unexpectedly marvellous and potentially disastrous - disastrous because Vee is not actually the person she's pretending to be, and neither is Noel.

The end of the war won't just mean peace, but discovery...

V for Victory Reviews

This warm-hearted novel is a delightful celebration of love, loyalty and the quiet heroism of ordinary people in extraordinary times. * Daily Mail *
This book is complete heaven, read solo or with its predecessors. Lissa Evans writes characters that are so vividly alive that they feel like old friends. A gorgeous, word-perfect, deeply pleasurable novel to lose yourself in. * India Knight *
At once funny and moving: the brisk kindness of the wardens will bring a lump to your throat. I could not have loved it more. * Susie Steiner *
V for Victory is an absolute balm for the soul, its characters felt so real...and Evans' writing is effortless * Red Magazine (Best Books of the Month) *
What keeps you reading is what made Evans a successful scriptwriter...her remarkably vivid recreation of British life during the war, and her characters. * Spectator *
