The Heartbeat Of Life
Life And Love At Mulberry Lane by Rosie Clarke is the most delightful historical novel that entertained me from the start.
The action is set in 1961 as we follow residents of Mulberry Lane in London. It is a time of opportunity as new ventures are opening up. We also travel to the south coast to accompany the life guards there.
Foreign travel is on the horizon. The world appears to be shrinking as planes become accessible for ordinary folk.
We hear of the brutality in Alabama as Martin Luther King jr leads peaceful protests for equality. The people are met with cruelty and violence. A huge heart from London is not used to the laws of segregation, seeing only people in need of help. She cannot stand by and do nothing but there are terrible consequences.
Young love is blooming. We see the value of good hearts over appearances. Kindness is always attractive.
Family and friends are important. We see a close knit community in action.
Life And Love At Mulberry Lane is a wonderful warm novel. Community and care are the order of the day and the heartbeat of the novel. I adored my trip to Mulberry Lane.

Life and Love at Mulberry Lane
With Mulberry Lane’s favourite pub, The Pig & Whistle undergoing renovation, proprietors Peggy and Able Ronoscki leave the chaos behind and head off on a trip of a lifetime to America. But disaster hits and Peggy finds herself in a critical condition in hospital.
Meanwhile, business is booming for young entrepreneurs Fay Ronoscki and Maggie Rowan with their new restaurant and catering empire. It seems neither has time for love.
But when fate throws a famous global singing sensation and glamourous racing car driver into the girls paths, falling in love with Jace and Greg seems beyond their control. Cupid has struck.
Life is made up of laughter, love and tears.
What is next for the folk of Mulberry Lane – can they find the happiness they all so crave?
