Hope still survives…
Alone and with the city in chaos, Ruby is determined to survive this war and rebuild her life.  And a chance encounter with street urchin Tommy gives Ruby just the chance she needs… 
And love will overcome.

Can love bloom amidst the ruins?  Or will the war take Ruby’s last chance at happiness too?
My thoughts
This is the first time I've read anything by this author and I actually enjoyed the story ,in fact this this the 5 WW2 historical fiction I've read this year and while I loved only 4 of those this one has made the list of them that I like and will be picking up again to readr.Just like them this story deals with the obstacles that challenged many people during the Second World War. How people had to persevere in every day challenges for survival. And how some even came together and made a new family for themselves when they lost everything, and I do mean everything. The characters seem to come alive and off the page, and with that they make you feel every thing they felt and went through,there was times I just wanted to cry and infact did so. With that said I want to thank the Publishers as well as NetGalley for letting me read and review it.
