    One thought on “Au Revoir Liverpool

    1. Margaret

      This was the first book that I had read by Maureen Lee and likely to be the last So many descriptions and details left out, so much could have been said in those pages and instead I am left thinking that she is a very very lazy writer with some decent ideas that she failed to fit on paper, or just failed to try.

    2. Jessica Zoe

      I picked up this book because it looked romantic and its set in liverpool, where my family comes from Set in the 1940 s, it tells the story of an ordinary person s problems in the midst of the colossal problems of the world.It s mostly light hearted, but emotionally powerful on many occasions At the beggining of the book, Jessica is unloved, unappreciated and easily bullied her children are her only comfort in a marriage in which her husband, Bertie, is extraordiarily unkind to her At the end of [...]

    3. David Lowther

      I read Au Revoir Liverpool because I devour everything that has the Second World War as its backdrop It turned out to be romantic fiction, not usually my cup of tea However, after sorting out who was who at a wedding which opened the story, I thoroughly enjoyed it.It was a saga, spread over ten years, stretching from Liverpool to Paris and back again The heroine, Jessica, is, in part, a tragic figure who makes one serious mistake that costs her dear but whose qualities enable her to build a new [...]

    4. Michael Cayley

      About a Liverpool lass whose husband chucks her out, and who gets trapped in German occupied Paris where she finds happiness and sorrow It s the first Maureen Lee novel I ve read, and I enjoyed it.

    5. Jazzy Lemon

      Jessica, mother of two in a lacklustre marriage, is surprised to find she has feelings for someone else, with dire consequences A pretty good book with mostly believable characters There were the few gushy, somewhat embarrassing scenes but only a couple, and though I did find the depiction of one of the characters far too harsh, I enjoyed it over all.

    6. Itchy

      I didn t finish this book The author s description of the occupation of Paris was very poorly researched including the curfew and the rationing of food and clothing The author didn t track events within the plot very well and referred to things that weren t possible because they were previously dealt with differently The writing disintegrated as the book progressed and at the 75% point I gave up reading it I won t bother reading any of this author.

    7. Melissa Walford

      Having read several books by Maureen Lee I was glad to find this one for sale in the library best 20p I ve spent Easy to read story based in Liverpool during WW2.

    8. Gail Murray

      Wonderful book from the first to the last page The story is about young Jessica who is married to dull and somehow narrow minded and manipulative Bertie and stays with him only for the sake of their two children One day she made wrong decision, one mistake and Bertie decided to punish Jessica for her deceit Then everything changed Since then Jessica followed her heart and instinct and made her life better but still complicated When just before the WWII she tried to help her friend Sarah, she fou [...]

    10. Sarah

      I read this in 3 hours and at least one and a half of those I should have been asleep for but it was an utterly compelling read I felt that I cared about the characters Jessica is married to Bertie, a manipulative, mean man One day she does something foolish and Bertie throws her out and doesn t allow her to know where the children are living Jessica seeks to carve out a new life for herself whilst grieving for the loss of that relationship Outbreak of war is imminent and an old friend asks her [...]

    11. Rosemary

      An unexpected story set in the 1930s of a young woman whose boring married life is turned upside down after a moment of passion with her stepfather It s not an abuse story but it does highlight how the double standard operated, since Jessica loses everything and her stepfather hardly seems to suffer at all After that, her life takes on some unexpected and rather unlikely turns and she finds herself in Paris as World War II is starting.I enjoyed the plot although I found it very hard to believe i [...]

    12. Bernadette Robinson

      I ve not read any of Maureen Lee s books for ages I quite enjoyed this one and at times felt sorry for Jessica, as everything that happened to her seemed to be due to the fact that she d a moment of passion with someone that she should never have been with It just goes to show that the rash decisions we make in life can often affect our future and in Jessica s case it wasn t for the better at the start.A lovely tale and an ideal way to spend the time it takes to read, reading it.

    13. Brenda

      The first of Maureen Lee s books that I have read I was expecting something along the lines of Helen Forester, Lyn Andrews etc so was pleasantly surprised when this turned out to be about a middle class family, the break up of a marriage, and an insight into life in Paris during WW2 The ending was a little predictable though.

    14. Theresa

      A very okish book So much material to use but lacking any real deep description Horrors of war,broken relationships but all very dry and did not draw me in at all Skips in places and just also just stops when you want in depth explanation.As someone else has commented very lazy writing indeed and I would not read another of this writers books.

    15. Allie

      Definitely not my usual genre of choice but this was a Book Circle read and I felt I ought to give it a go Surprised at how much I enjoyed it

    16. Lizzy Attwood

      This book was a surprise, it s intense and gripping Not at all what I expected Really enjoyed it Read it quickly, became gripping
