When we danced at the end of the Pier by Sandy Taylor
March 25, 2017
Jack and Nelson have always been dear friends to Maureen. Despite their different backgrounds, they’ve seen each other through thick and thin.
As Maureen blossoms from a little girl into a young woman, the candle she’s always held for Jack burns bright. But just as she’s found love, war wrenches them apart. The man she cherishes with all her heart is leaving.
When the bombs start to fall, Maureen and her family find themselves living in the most dangerous of times. With Jack no longer by her side and Nelson at war, Maureen has never felt more alone. Can she look to a brighter future? And will she find the true happiness she’s dreamt of?
An utterly gripping and heart-wrenching story about the enduring power of love, hope and friendship during the darkest of days. Perfect for fans of Pam Jenoff, Nadine Dorries and Diney Costeloe.
My review :- WOW! This book was a roller-coaster ride of love,heartbreak,hope and courage. I absolutely loved this book with a compelling and beautiful story ap, emotional and poignant prose and an excellent ending. I was hooked into the story following Maureen through her journey of love and hope. The problems that she and the others had to face due to the war and the subsequent death of a character (not naming here as the it would be a spoiler ) were just heart wrenching and sad. But the subsequent hope and the way the story ended makes this book a perfect for everyone who likes to read something deep an emotional. I loved it very much
