    I was thrilled to discover these stories which follow on from the cancelled tv series. However, I didn't realise when I started reading them that it wasn't going to tie it all up and there was another book to come. I'm looking forward to the next book but oh my what a whole lot of cliffhangers we were left with!! How will the 'episode' affect Steph, what will happen with Teresa and Nick? Someone is going to get badly hurt there and please, please let there be some relief for Pat from the odious I was thrilled to discover these stories which follow on from the cancelled tv series.

Such a pity they didn't keep the tv series. ITV don't know what they missed out on with this one.

    I am disappointed that part four did not conclude the story of residents of Great Paxford during WWII. Apparently the next installment is coming in the Autumn of 2018. I wish it had been made clear from the get-go that these short novels would not wrap-up the storyline. That said, however, all four novels were very good, continuing the stories of the characters from the TV show while they were still fresh in my mind. I look forward to the next installment.

    Final, Not Final, Installment This is the end of Season Three of "Home Fires" the novelization of Simon Block's excellent series about life during WWII in Great Paxton, an English village. As I read I fervently hoped that Block wouldn't tie up this story neatly and forever. He didn't.

    What!?!?! This isn't the ending?! That's right. There's another book coming in October 2018. I guess I'm OK with that (not that anyone really asked my opinion, I suppose). I enjoy spending time with these characters, but I really was under the impression that this 4-novella series was supposed to wrap up the loose ends left over from the television series, so I guess I was a little flabbergasted at the end.

Anyhow, as mentioned in my previous reviews of this series, you're not coming to it for the writing or the character development. It's assumed you're already familiar with the characters, and most of their further growth is done via telling you exactly what they're thinking. However, I'm OK with that, since I'm mostly in it for the plot. I want to know what ends up happening to these women whom I enjoyed watching in the television series. And, for the most part, the plot's keeping me interested, and I continue to want to know what will happen to each of them. So, yes, I'll be back for the next installment. *occasional language, adult situations

    I read these four books back to back as one novel. In fact the chapter numbers picked up after each book. They are like reading episodes of the series that was cancelled abruptly in the UK. It was fun to see what happened to everyone after the cliffhanger that ended the second TV season, still I felt that the stories weren’t all finished at the end of the 4th book. Since then I’ve read on other reviews that there is another book(s?) coming out in the fall. These books are really only for those w I read these four books back to back as one novel.

They wouldn’t make any sense otherwise. It was kind of Simon Block to tie up loose ends for the fans of the show. The books were very simple and quick. I read all four in about as many days.

    I read the last page not realizing that it WAS the last page. When I ‘turned’ it and saw there were no more.....until August, I actually said, “no” out loud! Now that I’ve settled down (a bit), I’ve decided that this gives me an excuse to re-watch and re-read the series in Aug. Admittedly, I’m an history buff and showing my age. The series has no magic or “darkness” lure about it, except that it takes place during a dark time of the last century, and shows the quiet strengths and sometimes loud I read the last page not realizing that it WAS the last page.

    Disappointed Enjoyed the TV series but didn’t enjoy this book. I kept waiting for it to take off, to get going and something to happen as all the way through I kept thinking I was still at the beginning. Was disappointed when the book finished and found there’s yet another book after this. Not sure I can be bothered. Left feeling flat.

    Tv show revisited I was so disappointed when I discovered this tv programme would not return for another series. So to accidentally stumble across 4 short stories which carried on where the tv show ended was a lovely surprise. Loaded onto my kindle and read whilst on holiday in Spain. Just preordered the next book.

    Part 4 of the series continuing the stories of the inhabitants of Great Paxford, England. Of course, Will died, and one of the soldiers returned (no surprise there). I was hoping that it would be the Reverend, but that story will have to wait for another edition. I'm happy to see that the series will be continuing, even if I have to wait an entire year for it.

    I fell in love with the BBC series Home Fires and then it suddenly ended with Season 2. When it was announced that Season 3 was already scripted and would be released as 4 ebooks I was excited. I read the first one immediately and then life got in the way and the next three sat on my Kindle. Over the holidays I decided to finish the series before 2017 ended. All three were true to the series and I loved how the characters continued their journeys. Cannot wait for the next one out in 2018!

    If this was how S3 of Home Fires was supposed to go then I'm ever more peed off with ITV for cancelling it than I was before! Thrilled to see that there will be another novel next year, long may they continue :) If this was how S3 of Home Fires was supposed to go then I'm ever more peed off with ITV for cancelling it than I was before!

    At Home Again in Great Paxford Another installment in the saga of the English town where Keep The Home Fires Burning was set. A lot was packed into this short chapter. Thrilled to find at the end of the book the promise of another whole novel, even if it's a year away!

    very disappointed that final didn't mean final. I read all 4 of the books really wanting to know how things ended. I feel a little burned by the deception. I am hesitant to purchase the sequel next year. very disappointed that final didn't mean final. I read all 4 of the books really wanting to know how things ended.

    Becoming rather predictable Having followed these characters through tv and now being forced to read their on going lives the story is becoming rather predictable which is disappointing. They're still a good read but just not as engaging as the story once was.

    I forgot I was reading this series and found this book on an unused ipad. It just reminded me how much I enjoyed the PBS series. I hear there is one more book. I must find it.

    I was simply charmed by the show Keep the Home Fires Burning. I loved the characters and their different stories. However Pat's story and her miserable marriage is what drove me to continue this series of shortish stories. In this installment I feel I can finally rest easy that Patricia is okay.
