Mulberry Lane Babies is well-written and has steady pacing. I like the authors conversational writing style. I was immediately drawn into the story and it held my attention throughout. I do recommend reading the series in order. Each book in The Mulberry Lane Series builds upon the previous one. Rosie Clarke has crafted lovely characters for her series. They are realistic and well-rounded. There are characters to love and there are characters that you will dislike (intensely). My favorite characters are Peggy, Maureen, Janet, Tommy and Anne. They are warm, friendly, thoughtful people and I wish they were my neighbors. Peggy is the mother figure and confidant for the residents of the lane. I like that we get to know Anne more in Mulberry Lane Babies. Tommy continues to grow into a responsible, hardworking and caring man. The East End was brought alive for me with the descriptions of the shops, home and area. We are given a realistic picture of life for those at home during World War II. Rationing is increasing and items are in scarce supply which we see in this book. While America is just entering the war, England has been at war since 1938. The author did an admirable job at handling some difficult subject matter (a woman being attacked). The residents of Mulberry Lane have each other to rely on during these dark days. The characters feeling/emotions come through the pages along with the grittiness of the war. I like how the author balances the difficulties with the joy. There may be a war going on, but they have their friendship, their families, weddings, and new babies. The Mulberry Lane Series would make a wonderful television program on PBS. The Avid Reader rating for Mulberry Lane Babies is 5 out of 5 stars. I cannot wait for my next to journey to Mulberry Lane.
*I voluntarily read an advanced copy of this novel. The comments and opinions expressed are strictly my own.
It's lovely to return to the Pig & Whistle and be back in the lives of Peggy and all her friends. Whilst the focus is very much on new arrivals, not everyone in the vicinity is working to keep things together whilst the war rages on; there are some bad people about and more than one of them raises their ugly head in the lanes this time round. Can the community pull together and get through? Only one way to find out!
This is, as I had expected, a terrific read. Picking up from where book two left off, we find ourselves once again fascinated by the tenacity of women during WWII to get on and make the best of things. With Peggy pregnant, all those around her pull together to help where and when they can. Maureen, also pregnant, has a fair bit to deal with too, what with her father's illness, his new wife's hostility towards her, looking after her step-daughter whilst her husband fights at the front and, as always, overseeing things at her father's shop. Life is very busy and there's never a dull moment. So much going on! This really is a packed - and completely enjoyable - novel. No less than five stars for such superb writing!
