This book is set in London during World War II. It is one of the more heart wrenching stories I have read recently. Almost to the point of being over the top. I love Anna Jacobs as an author though, so I suffered through.

Anna Jacobs is my favourite author as I love her historical, romantic and easy writing that gets me wrapped up in the 1800's. Our Lizzie is the 1st in a series of 4 stories of the same family and didn't disappoint.
