Book Tour/Review: A Ration Book Wedding by Jean Fullerton


It was such a pleasure to re-immerse myself in the lives of the Brogan family! A RATION BOOK WEDDING is the fourth book in this fabulous series and it didn't disappoint. I have been a fan of Jean Fullerton's work for many years because of the mix of romance, family drama, heartbreak and community she incorporates within a family where you get to know every single character as though they live just along the road.

A Ration Book Wedding, set against the backdrop of WWII, introduces the American GIs to London and all the drama their appearance brings. The story's protagonists, Francesca and Charlie have lots to juggle and suffer in order to pursue their seemingly ill-fated union. There are so many threads to this community, and the people, it is a joy to follow each of them along their journey.

Highly recommended!

A Ration Book Wedding
Because in the darkest days of the Blitz, love is more important than ever.

It's February 1942 and the Americans have finally joined Britain and its allies. Meanwhile, twenty-three-year-old Francesca Fabrino, like thousands of other women, is doing her bit for the war effort in a factory in East London. But her thoughts are constantly occupied by her unrequited love for Charlie Brogan, who has recently married a woman of questionable reputation, before being shipped out to North Africa with the Eighth Army.

When Francesca starts a new job as an Italian translator for the BBC Overseas Department, she meets handsome Count Leonardo D'Angelo. Just as Francesca has begun to put her hopeless love for Charlie to one side and embrace the affections of this charming and impressive man, Charlie returns from the front, his marriage in ruins and his heart burning for Francesca at last. Could she, a good Catholic girl, countenance an illicit affair with the man she has always longed for? Or should she choose a different, less dangerous path?
