My review of Liverpool Connection by Elisabeth Marrion


Liverpool Connection gives an insight into the lives of people living during the blitz.  We follow the challenges facing a young mother, Annie, as she cares for her children in difficult conditions - lack of heat, food, fear of the bombing raids.

I especially found the “how people actually lived” aspect of the story fascinating - Ms. Marrion breathes life into people who lived through the traumatic events of World War II.  History textbooks just stick to the facts - I prefer knowing how people actually felt, which is precisely what the author conveyed in this page turner.

I felt as if I were part of Annie’s family, living through the hardships faced by those left behind while men went off to war - hardships worsened once the war was over as the devastated countries started to rebuild. 

Liverpool Connection is a poignant tale of love, sacrifice and honor amongst the innocent civilians caught up in the politics of the day.  I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
