The Constant Star

The Constant Star

London in the Blitz – the story of The Wayward Wife continues in this compelling saga of love and war.

Susan Cahill enjoys her job at the BBC – until a bomb destroys the building and brings unwelcome responsibilities and an autocratic new boss, Walter Boscombe. He has no time for ambitious young women from Shadwell and seems determined to break Susan’s spirit – and her heart.

Breda Hooper, Susan’s widowed sister-in-law, and her small son are rescued from the East End’s shattered docklands by Danny, Susan’s estranged husband. Settled in a shabby caravan in the Vale of Evesham, Breda soon finds herself entangled in village affairs in more ways than one, with only her quick wits, her new friends and the ever dependable Danny to keep her out of trouble.

For Susan and Breda, jeopardy comes not from the skies but in the terrible price each must pay for falling in love with men who are not all that they seem to be and who, even in the midst of all out war, will change their lives forever.
