Review: Rainy Days for Harper Girls
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. Life is good for Sally and Ben as they look forward to their first child and hope for a prosperous future. Beth is settling into married life with Jack, gradually recovering from her aunt’s tragic death, though still unable to conceive a child. 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…
This story will definitely give you that sweet sense of nostalgia that's kinda perfect when the world has decided to repeat the early 1900s. From infectious diseases to worries about war, the book feels both ancient and current. This historical novel is sure to please.
The author's great gift is in drawing the relationships between the characters. From marriages to friendship, each connection feels authentic and full of warmth. In fact, authentic and full of warmth describes every piece of this feel-good fiction. We could all use some Harper Girls to get us through the difficult moments in life.
I quite enjoyed Minnie's story but that was just a diamond among other gems. Each story line was lovely and comforting. This is a must-read during difficult times as it serves as a gentle reminder that all rainy days are made better by the connections we make with others.
