About The Book
With the war raging on, can there be peace, love and joy this Christmas?
London, 1917. After her parents died in a tragic accident, Victoria did everything she could to keep her siblings safe and off the streets. Working at the Foyles Bookshop with her best friends is a dream come true – but now the war has put everything she holds dear in danger.
With her brother fighting on the frontline, Victoria wants to do her part. Little does she know that volunteering to spend time with injured soldiers at Endell Street Military Hospital will reward her in ways she could never have imagined. There are family secrets to uncover, along with love, once lost but never forgotten.
This Christmas, all the Foyles girls want is their loved ones back safe and sound…
The final heartwarming novel in the Foyles Girls trilogy, Christmas at the Foyles Bookshop is perfect for fans of Daisy Styles and Rosie Hendry.
This book certainly wasn’t what I expected but in a way, that was good. The title makes it seem like such an easygoing feelgood read and whilst it is a feelgood read, it is so much more than that.
I haven’t read the previous books so went into the book blindly. I really enjoyed the characters – the friendship between the women is amazing. Many secrets are revealed, all to the backdrop of World War One.
The true horror of war is shown via the soldiers in the hospital and the bombings, the true value of family and friendship shown through the characters and their stories. I’ll certainly be checking out more of the authors work.
