I have been reading Maureen Lee's books one by one. I am a huge anglophile and love reading about Britain. All of Lee's books are set in Liverpool and most of them during WWII. The Leaving of Liverpool takes you on a journey of two sister's. It is an epic story of family tragedy, love and history. It takes you through the roaring 20's and onwards. Such a good read. I love Maureen Lee. This is my favorite so far.

Maureen Lee write with a down home association which leaves you feeling your actually a part of the story. I found it brought back a lot of emotions from my own childhood right on through to adulthood. Very enjoyable and the story is easy paced so you are constantly waiting to see what happens next.

HASH(0x9a69a60c) out of 5 stars Entertaining Aug. 8 2008
By Serene Night - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an entertaining piece of historical fiction about two sisters Mollie and Annemarie, and the very different lives they lead after being accidentally separated when Mollie misses the boat to New York, leaving her young sister on board. It is set before the second world war, and involves POV switches between several main characters and a few minor ones.

I find the author's prose to be interesting and realistic. The people she writes about are flawed, and sometimes not nice. As usual in most Lee books, family, infidelity,grief, loss, and marriage play a prominent role.

While I liked this novel, it wasn't perfect. The ending felt really weak. After all the build up in the book, we are sort of left hanging on a variety of issues. I was also a bit disappointed in the character of Mollie who gave up searching for her sister a bit too quickly.

Overall, though, this was a good book. I would recommend it for fans of Lee's or fans of historical fiction.

HASH(0x9a69a858) out of 5 stars Another great Liverpool story! Jan. 30 2010
By Ellen Janes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Again Maureen Lee has sparked my own childhood WWII memories. Though we went through rationing and other small hardships, her books reveal we had it pretty good on this side of the ocean. I was around 6 years old when America entered the war in 1941 so I remember those days quite clearly though I had no idea of how the children and families of Liverpool suffered. What an inspiration these fictional characters are...probably a reflection of those who actually lived it.Maureen's characters are so beliveable you feel as though you knew them personally, even those who were not exactly saints! Her storytelling is incomparable! Hope she continues to write. Will be checking out her page periodically.

This is the first book that I have read by this author. Great read, good characters and locations. what a difficult life people had in those times, having said that I did not find the story depressing as her characters had humour and courage. I look forward to reading more of her work.
