Emma Blair was a pen name for Scottish actor and author Iain Blair, who began writing in his spare time and whose first novel, Where No Man Cries, was published in 1982. During a writing career spanning three decades he produced some thirty novels, but his true identity remained a secret until 1998 when his novel Flower of Scotland was nominated for the RNA Romantic Novel of the Year award. He was one of Britain's most popular authors and his books among the most borrowed from libraries. Iain Blair died in July 2011. Pee Wee, a highly talented saxophonist, has been asked to help launch a new jazz club in Soho. By accepting, the couple can be close to their son Julius, a high-flying diplomat at the American embassy. The Postons settle in Islington, only to find that some locals dislike having a black family in the area. But from their new neighbours – Albert and Jess Sykes, their daughter Ellie and son Paul – they receive the sort of warm welcome Londoners are known for.

This one has the feel of being written for grocery and rent money, rather than out of a need to express oneself artistically. It's all routine, interspersed with death, culminating in a romance that lacked believability. The characters were not much more than words on the page to me; anything that happened to them hardly mattered. If I had to guess why, I'd say because Emma Blair doesn't have the same love and understanding of the English and African-Americans as (s)he does when it comes to the Scots.

There's a war on, London is getting bombed, and yet the only halfway interesting thing in this novel-- and this tells you how bad it is-- was when the adolescent Paul is sent off to live in the country and is figuratively worked to death by a couple who run a farm. Child abuse (if you can call daily chores on a farm child abuse) always holds a sick sort of fascination, where you just keep reading to see how bad it can get. Well, mommy soon saw her Paulie removed from that environment, thus ending the one somewhat interesting plotline.

I will give it this, though, for a book featuring black people, taking place in the WWII era, it didn't bombard the reader with example after example of ill-treatment or get all preachy about how unenlightened white people were in the olden days, prior to the civil rights movement. Yes, the book had problems but self-righteousness wasn't one of them. Not that I expect an author to portray the black experience as butterflies and rainbows, it's just, let them have an identity where they're more than victims--and Blair did. So, for lack of white guilt alone it gets an extra star.
