Review: East End Jubilee

East End Jubilee
East End Jubilee by Carol Rivers

My rating: 0 of 5 stars

A very timely read. This book begins in June 1953 with the Queen's coronation and all the excitement of an East End family watching the ceremony on their new TV. (TV's had just come out and were a rare luxury). The residents of the street are squashed into one small room, grown-ups and kids alike. I wasn't ready for what came next and I won't say here. But it was enough to cause me to read the book in a couple of days. An easy and uplifting novel. Can recommend.
