Set around the iconic Carnaby Street department store at the height of the Blitz in London, this heart-warming story of friendship and courage at Christmas is the perfect holiday read.

London, September 1941.

Mary arrives in war-torn London nursing a broken heart and a painful secret after being dishonorably discharged from the Army. When she is offered her dream post as an assistant in the fabric department at Liberty store, she knows this is the fresh start she needs. Amid the store’s vibrant prints and sumptuous interiors, Mary finds a new family who help her to heal and put the ghosts of the past to rest.
