lizzies wish is the second of the series of books i am reading
i really enjoyed it as i did with the last of the series
i could never put this lovely book down! and i didnt!!!!!
all i could ever think about was reading the book as it was so good and i couldnt wait to figure out what was gong to happen next!
i really do reccomend this book!!
Looking forward to reading about others who lived at No. 6, Chelsea Walk.
This is the second of the The Historical House series. Each novel charts the life and times of the house at 6 Chelsea Walk, London, and the girls who lived there through three important periods of history. I've read other five so this is my final read and sadly the weakest. There really wasn't anything in the plot.

I like the bit where Lizzie speaks to Uncle William about the war, but otherwise, it's quite boring.
