This is a good novel about a young girl who after her father s death, struggles hard to keep the business going despite many obstacles There is also a bit of romance too and I felt sorry for Ginnie but being the strong and determined woman she was, everything turned out well in the end.
I enjoyed this book as it was easy to follow and had a very good storyline
Let me start off by saying that I love historical fiction and books that take place during war time I have read hundreds of them and perhaps that is the reason that this one didn t live up to my expectations There are so many outstanding books about war in the genre that I have rated very high as well as one that I consider the greatest love story I have come across to date This one is not it.
My biggest issue with this book and it was a really big one was the relationship between Ginnie and Nick What relationship There lies my issue On one page it Good book about a woman trying to keep her family afloat and how she kept her fathers shop opened.

This was a pleasant read about the impact on the lives of the people of London when the American military arrived in their little part of the world during WW11 Ginny was a sweet girl who gave up a lot to support her family and for a while it seemed like nothing was going her way Her sister was not that nice and I was somewhat disappointed to see she ended up OK There was a lot of language which way typical of the times and remembrances of girls putting beet juice on their lips and drawing a line down their legs to look like the seams of nylons Things in England were a lot worse than the USA but I still have a ration book saved from those days.
Enjoyed this story.
â The Shopkeeper’s Daughter Ð AN EASY READThis book was a bit too contrived for me I felt it was written for teenage girls There was very little history, or detail about World War II England.
Couldn t wait to finishThis book took me a long time to read as I found it boring, syrupy and dragged out.
The only reason I got to the end of this boring book was by flicking through pages.
Yet another Enid Blyton famous five ride again.
What always impresses me with books like these is that the characters have a get one with it attitude, especially at a very young age Obviously people died in war and people had to step up and grow up and provide for their family A wonderful Story of resilience.
