Summary

From the Sunday Times best-selling author of The Nightingale series.

A dramatic and heartwarming new saga series from the well-loved Donna Douglas.

Hull, 1940. Widowed Edie Copeland has just arrived on Exchange Street, heavily pregnant and with heavy suitcase in tow. She left York after tragedy struck to make a fresh start, but she's a stranger to this street, and her new landlord doesn't hesitate to remind her of this, widow or not. 

Luckily, the neighbours are a little more welcoming, and Edie is soon made to feel at home by the Maguires and the Scuttles. As air raids sound, and the war feels closer than ever, the community has to stick together. But Edie is hiding something, and she doesn't know how much longer her secret is safe. 

Is the past going to catch up with her? And will Edie still be able to call Exchange Street home when the truth comes out? 

For fans of Dilly Court, Rosie Goodwin and Katie Flynn, this is the launch of a new series based around the true stories of the Blitz.

A Mother’s Journey

Enjoyed this book immensely, great story line with strong and weak characters
The narration was done by Anne Dover ( who is one of the best) brought the characters to life for me
If you like this book you’ll like the Cliffehaven books written by Ellie Dean
Anyway can’t wait for the next Donna Douglas book

Cannot listen to the book due to technical issues

I love Donna Douglas’ books, Unfortunately, after I got a new top of the line ipod I do not manage to read this title or any others from this series, for example A Sister’s Wish. After listening for a while the screen stops responding to commands, so if I stop I cannot go back to a previous chapter but must listen from where I stopped. It also does not respond to any other command, such as sleep timer, go forward, go back, go to a certain chapter - nothing. I have listened to this book to the end, in spite of the difficulties, and enjoyed it. But when the same thing happened to A Sister’s Wish I tried to return it but it was denied. So I paid for a book I cannot listen to properly, and the solutions I got from Audible customer assistance did not solve the problem. Note: this only happens with this series and in the ipod. Works well in my iphone and ipad, but I don’t like to listen in them.

Heart touching

I really enjoyed listening to A Mother’s Journey, I felt immersed in the families. I rejoiced with them and cried with during their sorrows. I have listened to several of Donna Douglas books and I plan on listening to many more.
I recommend both this author and the narrator.
