9780099573951: First Love, Last Love

One of Judith Saxton's well-loved WWII sagas reissued as 'Katie Flynn writing as Judith Saxton.'
 
A powerful story of two sisters, and the love that changed their lives. It wasn't a privileged childhood, but it was a happy one. Sybil and Lizzie Cream, brought up in a fisherman's cottage on the edge of the cold North Sea were content to leave privilege where it belonged: with their friends the Wintertons. Christina Winterton was the same age as Sybil and the two girls were inseparable, but it was Lizzie whom Ralph Winterton, three years older, found irresistible.
 
Then war came to East Anglia, and so did Manchester-born Fenn Kitzmann now of the American Army Air Force. At their first meeting he is attracted by Sybil's subtle charm, but before he sees her again her own personal tragedy has struck, and he finds her changed almost out of recognition.

About the Author:

KATIE FLYNN has lived for many years in the north-west. A compulsive writer, she started with short stories and articles and many of her early stories were broadcast on Radio Merseyside. She decided to write her Liverpool series after hearing the reminiscences of family members about life in the city in the early years of the twentieth century. She also writes as Judith Saxton.

From Publishers Weekly:

Energetic characters in believable situations and an intensely evoked sense of place give life to Saxton's ( The Pride ) WW II-era tale of three British families. In the 1930s , Henry and Dora Cream earn an adequate living from North Sea fishing, and are proud of their two daughters: Lizzie, a stunningly attractive teenager, and Sybil, 10, who is plain-looking but exceptionally bright. The girls form close friendships with Ralph and Christina Winterton, whose wealthy family summers near the Creams' seaside cottage. While these four youngsters become inextricably bound, a brash Jewish boy named Fenn Kitzman flees his abusive relatives in Manchester and stows away on a freighter bound for New York. The war brings profound changes. Ralph's unsavory side is revealed and Lizzie becomes tragically estranged from her close-knit family. On a windswept beach, Fenn, now an American pilot based in England, meets Sybil. Saxton's keenly observed settings and period details, ranging from a spot "where the gorse grows and the larks nest" to the carefully described contents of a fisherman's cottage, give this story gratifying immediacy.
