Yours Cheerfully by AJ Pearce

From the author of Sunday Times Bestseller, Dear Mrs Bird, comes Yours Cheerfully – charming, heart-warming and hilarious, it’s just the tonic we’ve all been waiting for.


London, September, 1941.

Following the departure of the formidable Editor, Henrietta Bird, from Woman’s Friend magazine, things are looking up for Emmeline Lake as she takes on the challenge of becoming a young wartime advice columnist.  Her relationship with boyfriend Charles is blossoming, while Emmy’s best friend Bunty, is still reeling from the very worst of the Blitz, but bravely looking to the future.  Together, the friends are determined to Make a Go of It.

When the Ministry of Information calls on Britain’s women’s magazines to help recruit desperately needed female workers to the war effort, Emmy is thrilled to be asked to step up and help.  But when she and Bunty meet a young woman who shows them the very real challenges that women war workers face, Emmy must tackle a life-changing dilemma between doing her duty, and standing by her friends.

Every bit as funny, heartwarming, and touching as AJ Pearce’s debut, Dear Mrs Bird, Yours Cheerfully is a celebration of friendship, a testament to the strength of women and the importance of lifting each other up, even in the most challenging times.

Peer & Press Reviews

Our plucky heroine Emmeline Lake is back in the sequel to one of my favourite novels, Dear Mrs Bird.  It’s full of the cheerful bravery and good humour that makes AJ Pearce’s writing so special, with punch-the-air moments set against the sadness and loss of war.  I gobbled up Yours Cheerfully and finished it with the feeling that the world is a wonderful place, really.

Julie Cohen, author of The Two Lives of Louis and Louise

I loved Pearce’s debut, Dear Mrs Bird, and this is the charming sequel, which continues the adventures of aspiring journalist Emmeline Lake now that the formidable Mrs Bird has departed Woman’s Friend magazine…  A celebration of female friendship and solidarity in the toughest of times.

Alice O’Keeffe, Editor’s Choice, The Bookseller

An absolute delight!  I loved Dear Mrs Bird and was thrilled to spend more time with Emmy and Bunty in Yours Cheerfully.  AJ Pearce shines a light on the hardships that women factory workers faced during World War II, an echo to the plight of working mothers today.  Endearing, poignant, and relevant, this uplifting novel is a treat!
