Liverpool angles by lyn andrews 
The blurb 
Born at the turn of the twentieth century, Mae Strickland is only a few days old when her mother suddenly dies. Her aunt Maggie brings Mae up together with her own children, Eddie and Alice, and the girls become like sisters. In spite of Mae’s unhappy start, life feels full of promise.
Then, as the First World War looms, everything changes. While the local men – including young Eddie – leave to fight, Mae and Alice train as field nurses. As they travel to the front line in the wake of family tragedy, nothing can prepare them for the hardship that lies ahead.
Yet there is solace to be found amid the wreckage of the war, and for both, romance is on the horizon. But it will take great courage for Mae and Alice to follow their hearts. Can love win out in the end?
WHAT I SAY 
I have read a lot of lyn andrews books and have enjoyed most of them i did this one too this book is very well written it got lots of shocks and upset i going to say it a story of love , families, friends and hope they all will all way be there for each other in good and bad times the friends grown up together i loved the whole story set before and after the war i liked that alice and mae volunteer to be nurse but they were way to young at the start when mae was born her dad was away at sea her mum beth died giving birth to her she got a bad fever maggie could not save her it was so sad she told her she would take care of mae which she did she was her mum she loved her just like her own but billy her husband was not happy he a very mixed up man he likes to drink alway in the pub he not happy maggie took on mae as she pregnant her self one day he just pack his things and leaves not telling any one 
Maggie i loved her she a fab lady she would help any one if she could she loves all her kids so much their her world she works very hard she was asked to be a money lender which she did to try to help her family by running this little business it seem to be going so well just now she making her own money from it i loved that we hear how tough thing were for maggie but she gets by some how but one day her boys say they gone to sign up to go to war she not happy they are her boys then one day she gets another shock about john and the girls now want to help out in this war she feel she losing her family
