I couldn't wait to rejoin Alice, Marg and Edith to find out how their stories would progress. Best friends since they were little and affectionately known as The Halfpenny Girls, these three girls, now young women, they have been there for each other through good times and bad.
Life is still full of ups and down for the trio, Alice is expecting her first child with husband Gerald and Edith is making plans for her wedding to Philip but life is still a struggle for Marg despite her good friends looking out for her. With Christmas fast approaching and the potential prospect of another war on the horizon will the girls and their families be able to pull together and stay strong?
I love reading at any time of the year, but now with the night's drawing in, I can't wait until the time comes to pull the curtains and shut out the real world to curl up and lose myself in another world and what better place to escape to than Blackpool with old friends?
The Halfpenny Girls at Christmas is another enthralling novel which centres on family and friendship with characters that are so captivating I almost wish I could be a Halfpenny Girl! I really enjoyed seeing how the girls are maturing and dealing with whatever life throws at them. Every character is written so vividly it's easy to feel compassion for them and also making them difficult to forget.
Maggie Mason is an exceptional wordsmith who has truly mastered her craft of story telling. Each book is an absolute delight to read and would make a wonderful addition to any saga loving bookworm's library.
