A Christmas Wedding

A Christmas Wedding
Fiona Ford 
Blurb: London, 1943: Dot Hanson has never forgotten the thrill of seeing the beautiful Christmas displays at Liberty’s department store as a young girl. Never in her wildest dreams did she think she would one day work there, or that she would fall in love with the store’s manager, her childhood sweetheart Edwin Button. But in spite of the life Dot has built for herself, and the tight-knit community around her, she lives in the shadow of a terrible secret. And as the bombs continue to fall across Britain there is more heartache still to come. All Dot wants is a family of her own with the man she loves by her side. Will her dreams come true in time for Christmas? 

Sadly, this is the final instalment in the Liberty Girls saga and I have loved getting to know the girls and their families over the past couple of years. 

 In this final part we meet up with Dot, who has recently found love again with Edwin Button, who she previously fell in love with as a teenager. They are engaged to be married and are like a couple of love sick puppies!! 

 Mary has married David and has recently adopted his  niece Emma and is busy building a loving home for her. Mary is estranged from her family and is devastated to receive a letter from her father telling her he would like to meet up with her as time is running out for him. This puts her in a real dilemma: Should she go and try to make amends, or should she let bygones be bygones and move on with her life? 

 Meanwhile, Liberty’s is welcoming a new sales assistant called Brenda and of course, Dot takes her under her wing and immediately realises that all is not well and wants to find out the reason why Brenda is such a nervous young lady. If anyone can find out why, it’s Dot! 

 Dot has a very dear friend called Ivy who lives in the West Country and she decides to take a trip to see her and her daughter for a bit of a break. Little does Dot realise that her trip will change her life and the lives of those around her forever….. 

 This was another fabulous read from the author. She writes straight from the heart and this saga has been full of love, loss, drama, laughter and everything in between! 

I am sad to say goodbye to the girls of London town and will miss them dearly. Anyone who is a saga lover will thoroughly enjoy this series and I hope to read more from this wonderful author.
