Publisher's Summary

There are some things which even the closest friendship cannot survive.... Neighbours Edie Kelsey and Lil Horton have been friends for more than twenty years, sharing the joys and sorrows of tough lives as the wives of fishermen in Grimsby.
So it was no surprise that their children were close and that Edie's son, Frank, and Lil's daughter, Irene, would fall in love and marry at a young age. But the declaration of war in 1939 changes everything. Frank goes off to fight, and Irene and baby Tommy, along with Edie's youngest son, are sent to the countryside for safety. With Edie's husband, Archie, fishing the dangerous waters in the North Sea and daughter Beth in London doing "important war work", Edie's family is torn apart.
Friendship sustains Edie and Lil, but tragedy follows, and there's concern that Beth seems to have disappeared. But it is Irene's return, during the VE day celebrations, that sends shockwaves through the family and threatens to tear Edie and Lil's friendship apart forever.

Excellent

Where does Welcome Home rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Quite high up

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Ones at the docks and Freeman Street.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both. Having been and brought up in Grimsby could relate to story with personal memories.

Any additional comments?

Although I wasn't born until after WW2, I still found many scenes unchanged until later.

Enthralling read

I couldn't put the earphones down. What a fabulous story and read so well the characters were brought to life and hard to farewell. The end came way too soon.
