    Mollys Christmas Orphan was such a brilliant, un-putdownable read, I was so drawn in by the characters of Molly Swift who had already suffered the tragic loss of her two year old daughter, and is now having to go through the outbreak of war, and all the ups and downs it brings. I read this book within a day, I couldn't put my kindle down, this is a definitely recommended read and will be looking at more books by Carol Rivers.

    I enjoyed this book as it was just a nice, easy read that gave us an insight into life in the East End during the war. It was a bit like a soap, as it followed the life of the main character and the challenges that she faced. It was easy to follow and was great for a bit of light entertainment reading

    I haven't read a Carol Rivers book for awhile and this didn't disappoint! Molly is a likeable main character, my favourite was Spot. I hope we revisit them one day when the war is over!
