Jessica, mother of two in a lacklustre marriage, is surprised to find she has feelings for someone else, with dire consequences A pretty good book with mostly believable characters There were the few gushy, somewhat embarrassing scenes but only a couple, and though I did find the depiction of one of the characters far too harsh, I enjoyed it over all. Really enjoyed this book Recommended.

I picked up this book because it looked romantic and its set in liverpool, where my family comes from Set in the 1940 s, it tells the story of an ordinary person s problems in the midst of the colossal problems of the world. It s mostly light hearted, but emotionally powerful on many occasions At the beggining of the book, Jessica is unloved, unappreciated and easily bullied her children are her only comfort in a marriage in which her husband, Bertie, is extraordiarily unkind to her At the end of the book, having been abandoned and cruelly deprived of her children, having survived the horrific second world war in occupied Paris, having realised that she s not as thick as Bertie had made her think she was, she discovers her own courage to keep calm and carry on Extremely beautiful, she captivates the heart 5 stars Loved this WW2 STORY GREAT READ. ↠´ Au Revoir Liverpool Ã I read Au Revoir Liverpool because I devour everything that has the Second World War as its backdrop It turned out to be romantic fiction, not usually my cup of tea However, after sorting out who was who at a wedding which opened the story, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a saga, spread over ten years, stretching from Liverpool to Paris and back again The heroine, Jessica, is, in part, a tragic figure who makes one serious mistake that costs her dear but whose qualities enable her to build a new life under very difficult circumstances. Au Revoir Liverpool is not a war story but a story set in the war There are some fascinating characters and the tale is really about how they interact with one another and this makes for a gripping read Of course, the war is always there but only intrudes in the narrative when absolutely essential Of course, there are tragedie About a Liverpool lass whose husband chucks her out, and who gets trapped in German occupied Paris where she finds happiness and sorrow It s the first Maureen Lee novel I ve read, and I enjoyed it.
