Summary

February 1941. The world is at war, and Joyce Cooper is doing her bit for the war effort. But as the Blitz takes hold of London, Joyce is called upon to plot the devastation that follows in its wake. Night after night, she must stand before her map and mark the trail of loss and suffering inflicted upon the homes, families and businesses she knows so well. 

February 1974. Decades later, from her basement flat, Joyce watches the world go by above her head. This is her haven, the home she has created for herself having had so much taken from her. But now the council is tearing down her block of flats, and she's being forced to move. Could this chance to start over allow Joyce to let go of the past and step back into her life?

An exceptional emotive book

The narration was just wonderful l loved the different characters with their accents Its the kind of book that although it's war time you always see the best in people although there was sadness with Joyce l loved the unusual job she undertook and was rooting for her from the very beginning I loved the story that embedded family war and the goodness
