December 31, 1939 was the first New Year’s Eve that anyone could remember that there hadn’t been crowds celebrating at midnight in Trafalgar Square.So begins 1940 for the waitresses at the Lyons Corner House at Marble Arch.I'm one of those people who think that speaking ill of the dead is not particularly helpful.However, I am not a hypocrite and I don't believe in glossing over history when someone does pass away.What I loved about it was that the descriptions were very vivid.A 'Land Girl', an American GI, and a British soldier find themselves together in a small Kent town on the road to Canterbury.

I picked this book up in a shop for 50cents after reading the blurb.

When she finally picks Norval up at eight in the morning, she does not remember where she has been, and Norval takes the brunt of her father's anger.

Later, while talking with her fourteen-year-old sister Emmy (Diana Lynn), Trudy vaguely recalls using an assumed name and marrying someone the night before.

It is set in London in the second world war and tells the story of a group of girlfriends that work in the corner shop (restaurant) who are married, engaged or dating soldiers, sailors and airmen.

It talks about the bomb raids in London and the effect this had on them and their families.
