Paradise Court

3.33 based on 3 ratings & 1 reviews on Goodreads.com

In its tiny corner of the East End, life in Paradise Court is often hard, but never dull. At its heart, the Duke of Wellington, Wilf Parsons presides behind the bar as a pillar of cohesion and strength. In spite of the ever-increasing reality of war, to 'Duke', his large, motherless brood of six, and other local families, everyday dramas in the Court still take greater precedence.

Paradise Court marks the start of an unforgettable saga of life in London's East End - a glorious, heart-warming story of ordinary people set against the backdrop of the Great War, ending in breathtaking suspense as life is held, literally, in the balance . . .
