Historical Fiction • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

London's historical Bethnal Green Library comes to life as the WWII Blitz turns every day into a fight for survival. Fenella Woolgar narrates with a comforting British accent, immersing the listener in the stories of three courageous women who are dedicated to the library and its community. Juliet Lansdown, the newly arrived deputy librarian, speaks with determination as she fights to make the library the supportive hub of the community. Young Katie Upwood's voice gradually gains strength as she faces family turmoil and a beau who is lost at the front. Sofie Baumann, a young Jewish refugee, has inconsistent traces of her native German accent. She finds confidence and community while coping with an abusive employer, fear about the fate of her family, and her need for a place to belong.
