The Stepney Girl’s Secret
A brand new heart-warming and atmospheric saga fiction series from Jean Fullerton, charting the loves, hopes and heartaches of three women who move a rectory in Stepney, East London during WW2.
East London, 1940. At the outbreak of war, hopeless romantic Prue Carmichael and her sister must leave their rural parish behind when their father is posted to a church in Stepney. To Prue, the blitz-ravaged streets of London seem an unlikely place for love to bloom – until a chance encounter throws rakish engineer Jack Quinn into her path. But as their connection deepens, his troubled past begins to emerge, and Prue realises Jack has secrets to hide . . .
Luckily, in between starting work at a railway yard and helping her mother house Jewish refugees in the parish, Prue manages to keep her mind off love and on the wartime effort. However, Jack isn’t the only man who’s fallen for Prue – and when he is recruited into Churchill’s secret underground army, an unexpected suitor offers a fresh distraction.
As air raid sirens sound and the Battle of Britain rages overhead, Prue Carmichael must face some of the greatest horrors of her young life. Meanwhile, she is waging her own battle – the fight between her heart and her head . . .
Amidst the ruins of war, will Prue and Jack’s love find a way to flourish?
About The Author – Jean Fullerton
Born and bred in East London Jean was a District Nurse by trade and ended her thirty-year career in health care as a senior lecture in Health and Nursing Studies in London Southbank University.
She had published twenty sagas all set in East London with both Orion and Atlantic the most recent of which is the highly successful Ration Book series. She has also recently released her autobiography A Child of the East End.
I’m a huge fan of Jean’s books and she never fails in providing a beautifully written book.
She always catches the period she’s written about, to the point you feel like it’s almost real. A very well researched author who’s provided over 500 pages of enjoyment.
The book is written on the struggles of life in the 1940’s and the book is centred around Prudence Carmichael known as Prue.
Prue the youngest child to a rector has moved from the countryside to the east end of London. Prue is actively involved in working and supporting St Winifred’s parishioners including offering her parents home to Jewish refugees.
In achieving all of the above she falls in love with Jack Quinn but not all is smooth along the way. Will her and Jack become a couple?
I would certainly recommend this book.
