What readers are saying about This Time For Keeps:
'This is a charming "British, realist, kitchen sink" story, narrating the closing years of the Second World War. Heartfelt drama and tissues recommended. Another classic from Dee Williams'
'Once I start reading a story I can't put it down. In every single book there is at least one page that is so heart rending it reduces me to tears, although they usually end happily. The trials and hardship the characters endure keep me gripped from start to finish'
