This book is out tomorrow and really is well worth reading, a lovely look into the past.
In the spring of 1939, with the Second World War looming, two determined twenty-four-year-old’s, Heather Jenner and Mary Oliver, decided to open a marriage bureau.
They found a tiny office on London’s Bond Street and set about the delicate business of match-making.
Drawing on the bureau’s extensive archives, Penrose Halson – who many years later found herself the proprietor of the bureau – tells their story, and those of their clients.
I hope you enjoy it
