Madame Barbara

 
9780002259897: Madame Barbara

A wonderful new novel from Liverpool’s best-loved author. A tale of loss and love set in post-Second World War England and France.

This is the story of a young Liverpool woman widowed in the Second World War before she can know the happiness of having a family. With the blessing of her mother, with whom she runs a B&B, she goes to Normandy to see where her husband was killed in the D-Day landings. Once she is there, she meets an impoverished French chicken farmer, now reduced to driving a beaten up (and still rare) taxi and looking after his old mother and dying brother. Will these two find happiness together?

Review:

Praise for Liverpool Miss:

‘Records of hardship during the Thirties or earlier are not rare; but this has features that make it stand apart’
Observer

‘The story of a young girl’s courage and perseverance against adversity… warm-hearted and excellent’
Manchester Evening News
