Keep the Home Fires Burning by S. Block

Keep the home fires burning pb

Keep The Home Fires Burning is written by the creator and writer of the TV show on ITV, HOME FIRES, which was cancelled after the first season (despite 6 million viewers!) on a cliff-hanger. Over 50,000 fans have since petitioned ITV to bring the series back to our screens!

Keep The Home Fires Burning picks up where the TV series left off and is perfect for fans of Call the Midwife, Granchester and Foyles War.

We have 5 reading group sets available. Once you have read the book you can send questions for the author for the chance to interview him over skype.
