As Time Goes By
Carter Lane is an ordinary backstreet in Bermondsey and, for Dolly and Mick Flynn, it is home. They've raised their family with not much money but lots of love. When World War Two breaks out they know that nothing will be quite the same again. As the Blitz starts to take its toll and the close-knit community in Carter Lane endures the sorrows and partings which they had dreaded above all else, they find comfort in one another and solace in the knowledge that their wounds will eventually heal - as time goes by. AS TIME GOES BY by is a vivid portrayal of an East End community struggling to survive the horror of the Blitz. Heartbreaking and compelling, this is the story of a community in its darkest and yet finest hour, a community which has all but disappeared.

I liked the idea of this book so much more than the actual book. The elderly Lockwood sisters were absolutely my favourite characters and the love Bowling has for London came through loud and clear, but this didn't make as much of an impact on me as I'd expected. Read full review
