Elsie's Wartime Wish Summary

Elsie's Wartime Wish: A captivating WW2 family saga that will pull at your heart-strings by Carol MacLean

While WW2 rages, Elsie must battle for her family

Elsie Weir is trying hard to keep her family together. Living in Kiltie Street tenement in Glasgow with her mother and little sister, Jessie, isn't easy - not least because her mother spends most days in a drunken stupor.

But life gets harder still when their mother dies suddenly, leaving Jessie and Elsie broken-hearted. When Elsie's meagre wages won't stretch to supporting them, they're thrown out of their home. The future looks bleak, until their mother's estranged family deigns to take them in.

But their relief is short-lived as it becomes clear the Mearns family have taken in the orphan sisters only for appearances, treating them cruelly behind closed doors.

When Elsie discovers the devastating secret her mother kept from them, it seems that they may have a lifeline - until that dream too, is cruelly dashed.

Now, more than ever, the sisters only have each other. But can Elsie and Jessie find some hope in a life full of heartbreak?

A heartwarming and compelling family saga that fans of Rosie Hendry and Annie Murray will love.
