When Ruby and Verity met as girls they came from different worlds. Verity was privately educated, living in a beautiful Hampstead home, while Ruby was being raised in extreme poverty. Nether-the-less they became firm friends. However, fortunes are not set in stone and soon the girls find their situations reversed. As Ruby goes up in the world, Verity encounters more and more tragedy, but still the girls remain a large part of each other's lives. That is until one day in 1938 when Ruby says the terrible words 'You're dead to me' and it looks like their friendship might be over for good...

A good idea and I enjoyed the story. Lesley Pearse writes well about girls from different sides of the tracks and their relationships and gives a vivid picture of the effects of WWII on their lives.. However this one dragged on too long, especially towards the end when it was a foregone conclusion. It was as if her publishers had told her to use a specific number of words so she spun it out.

The writing is of Lesley's usual high standard, but drags on too long. Towards the end I found myself skim-reading, as it felt as though it would never end. It was as if she had a certain number of pages to fill and it was too much.
