The Coronation Party

The Coronation Party

The heart-warming and uplifting new saga for fans of Nancy Revell


Brought to you by Penguin.

Summer, 1953. The sun is shining on Little Green Street, the bunting is being brought out, and Britain is getting ready to crown its new Queen.

Except Helen Jones doesn't feel much like celebrating. Her father passed away last year, on the very same day as King George. Life hasn't felt the same ever since.

Her husband Tad has a plan. As the newly-appointed chair of the small town's Coronation Tea Party committee, he's hoping that the day will be the perfect moment to bring a spark of joy back to their little family - and to the whole community.

But then Helen gets a letter from her mum in London, and she realises she has a bigger dream - she's going to go to see the new Queen...
