Booklist Review

When we last left the Pearson family, at the close of Never Say Never (2007), World War II had begun, and one of their sons in all but name, John, had been killed at Dunkirk. It's now 1942, and Emma and Sam are coping with shortages but are otherwise content in little North Waltham. Their daughter Bella is a land girl working at a local farm and bringing in produce and milk when she can. Their other daughter, Emily, is a driver stationed in London, recuperating from bomb injuries. The other unofficial member of their family, Tom, is also in London, working in a munitions factory. As the situation in London gets worse, Sam and Emma travel there to convince family friends to stay with them and escape the stress of the city. The bombings continue, the war revs up, and everyone is trying to make the best of things. Living for today is the mantra, and each family member does so in his or her own way in this detailed, heartwarming tale.--Hatton, Maria Copyright 2007 Booklist
