About the Author
AJ Pearce grew up in Hampshire, England. She studied at the University of Sussex and Northwestern University. A chance discovery of a 1939 women's magazine became the inspiration for her series The Emmy Lake Chronicles, which includes Dear Mrs. Bird, Yours Cheerfully, and Mrs. Porter Calling. She lives in the south of England.
Praise for Mrs. Porter Calling:

"Immersive... Pearce enhances the [story] with lively characters, showing how they find joy in simple pleasures and humor in the face of loss." --Publishers Weekly

"Delightful...with liberal amounts of pluck, compassion, and the day-to-day details of wartime life in London...For readers who love plucky heroines or World War II fiction - or who just need encouragement to keep going in tough times - Mrs. Porter Calling is just the thing." --Shelf Awareness

"This book has everything: humour, heart, and, most important, the reminder that true friendship can help us move whatever mountains get in our way!" --First for Women

"Clear a space on the shelf reserved for your favorite comfort books. Mrs. Porter Calling is the rare novel that manages to be deep as it is delightful. Funny, endearing, heartbreaking, and uplifting -- it's a thoroughly entrancing story about friendship, work, and finding the best in life, even during the worst of times." --Nina de Gramont, author of The Christie Affair

"Both endearing and amusing. While the realities of war are not ignored, the focus of this heartwarming story is on how these people meet their difficulties with optimism and determination and move forward knowing that they are not alone." --Booklist
