‘A wonderfully nostalgic tale’ Choice Magazine It’s 1942 and Annie Walker is the landlady of the Rovers Return on Coronation Street. With her husband, Jack, away fighting for King and Country, Annie must juggle lone motherhood with keeping the regulars happy. Gracie Ashton works behind the bar at the Rovers and thinks all the girls swooning at the American soldiers flooding into Weatherfield are plain daft. But when she meets the handsome GI, Chuck Dawson, Gracie wonders if she has her own head screwed on right. With rationing, air raids and blackouts, the wives and mothers of Coronation Street are determined to count their blessings, but when an unwelcome face from the past turns up at the Rovers it looks like Annie will have more to worry about than Hitler’s bombs… Full of Coronation Street’s trademark humour and warmth, it’s the perfect gift for Mother’s Day.
