About This Item

Headline, UK, 2004. Medium Trade Paperback. Condition: Good. Reprint. 533 pages. Covers have no creasing. Corners of covers are moderately bumped. Spine has moderate lean and moderate reading creases. Pages are lightly tanned. It is 1948, and England is recovering from a war. But at 21 Nevern Street, London, the conflict has only just begun. Queenie Bligh's neighbours do not approve when she agrees to take in Jamaican lodgers, but Queenie doesn't know when her husband will return, or if he will come back at all. What else can she do? Gilbert Joseph was one of the several thousand Jamaican men who joined the RAF to fight against Hitler. Returning to England as a civilian he finds himself treated very differently. It's desperation that makes him remember a wartime friendship with Queenie and knock at her door. Gilbert's wife Hortense, too, had longed to leave Jamaica and start a better life in England. But when she joins him she is shocked to find London shabby, decrepit, and far from the golden city of her dreams. Even Gilbert is not the man she thought he was.

About Classic Books of Loyalist

I am book lover and collector of all types and genres. I am most notably fond of my older, rarer hard cover, first editions. I tend to acquire my books by buying entire inventories at yard sales, and so end up with a lot of book that hold little interest for me, but often are very interesting to others. Prior to Biblio, I have only ever sold one book, on a early test run through Amazon, and lost money due to shipping. I am not out to make huge money, but want to convey these artifacts to the world, and not go broke doing it. Someday, in my retirement, I may open a small brick and mortar store, but today, I am just a guy with more books in my basement than my wife approves of.
