The Girl from Cobb Street (Daisy's War - Book 1)The Girl from Cobb Street by Merryn Allingham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

RELEASED THIS MONTH [JANUARY]

I would like to thank Harlequin (UK) Limited via Net Galley for allowing me to read and review this awesome read. It took me right back to the roots of when I first started reading books seriously and for pleasure.

This is about Daisy, around the early 1900's. Daisy grew up in an orphanage. Very different to the places nowadays.

When she meets Gerald, she falls in love with him, he however is on leave from India [Army] so when he returns to India, unbeknown to him, he has left Daisy pregnant.

Daisy sustains her relationship desperately by writing to Gerald, but the Cornel gets wind of what is happening and forces Gerald to marry Daisy, but not all ends well, she discovers things about Gerald that will impact not only on her life but on the life of her unborn child.

It was a very enjoyable read.


She longed for a family of her own…



Growing up in an orphanage on East London’s Cobb Street, Daisy Driscoll never felt the warm heart of home. Forging her own way in the world, determined Daisy struggles to make ends meet as the country finds itself on the brink of the Second World War.



Her fortunes change when she finds solace in the arms of Gerald Mortimer, a handsome cavalry subaltern in the Indian army. Finally, Daisy has found someone to love of her very own. But soon she discovers she’s pregnant and fate was never going to give her an easy ride.



Gerald is not all he claims to be and, as he leads her along a path of danger and scandal, Daisy must find the strength within herself to get through her darkest hour.
