Hard times ahead for the Harpers girls…
It is two years since Harpers opened in Oxford Street and Ben is planning to expand the premises.

New girls have joined Harpers and Marion, Janice and Becky all become a part of the daily life at the busy store. Rachel is undecided whether to marry a man she isn’t sure she can trust, while Minnie meets an old love.
The sun is shining in English streets but on the horizon dark clouds gather over Europe and war looms threatening bringing rainy days for the Harpers girls…

A Cracking Addition to this Series!
Another fabulous read from Rosie Clarke advancing the story of the Harpers Girls that little bit further . . .
Two years on from the opening of Harpers Emporium on Oxford Street, life is moving on for both the owners and the staff, all with one goal in mind; making sure the store continues to get bigger and better!
There is a dark cloud hanging over Britain with the threat of war attached and life has a dull edge to it these days. As young men plan to be among the first to sign up to fight for their country, women are just as determined to do their bit. The staff at Harpers are no different and the thought of war hangs over each and every day. Our original girls are moving on with their lives in many different ways, but their friendships are as strong as ever. The introductions of a few new characters keeps things fresh, but none of the originals are forgotten. Beautifully crafted, each one takes on a personality of their own and it all adds up to a stirring read with a bit of mystery, lots of love and a big dollop of uncertainty. A cracking addition to the series, and one I heartily recommend. A superb read which earns every one of the five stars I’m happy to give.
My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley and to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot in this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
