Description

From the author of This Holey Life, Bright Stars and Generation Game

London, 1926. Two baby girls are born just hours and miles apart. One you know as the Queen of England, but what of the other girl- the daughter of an undertaker named in her honour? Betsy Sunshine grows up surrounded by death in war-torn London, watching her community grieve for their loved ones whilst dealing with her own teenage troubles… namely her promiscuous sister Margie. As Betsy grows older we see the how the country changes through her eyes, and along the way we discover the birth of a secret that threatens to tear her family apart.

Sophie Duffy dazzles in her latest work of family/historical fiction. A tale which spans generations to explore the life and times of a family at the heart of their community, the story of a stoic young woman who shares a connection with her queenly counterpart in more ways than one…

'Told with wit and warmth, this is a gritty, truly British, saga; from war time childhood fortitude though to a lifetime of love, loss and laughter. Dive in and enjoy!' Paul McVeigh

'A charming and funny look at family, loyalty and love during the Queen’s reign. I think Her Majesty would approve' Cathy Bramley

'So atmospheric you can almost smell the Brylcreem...' Laurie Graham

'Clever and charming, I loved this look at the complications of family life' Katie Fforde
