Christmas time with our favourite Bomb Girls at the Phoenix Munitions Factory.
Daisy Styles grew up in Lancashire surrounded by a family and community of strong women whose tales she loved to listen to. It was from these women, particularly her vibrant mother and Irish grandmother, that Daisy learnt the art of storytelling. There was also the landscape of her childhood - wide, sweeping, empty moors and hills that ran as far as the eye could see - which was a perfect backdrop for a saga, a space big enough and wild enough to stage a drama about women's lives during the Second World War.
Praise for Daisy Styles * - *
This book brought home wonderfully the vivid camaraderie wartime women shared and their immense sacrifices on the Home Front. Well done Daisy for creating characters that are real women in the best sense. Funny, scheming, loyal and witty, but about all, hardworking and proud. An absolute joy to read -- Kate Thompson, bestselling author of * Secrets of the Singer Girls *
Feisty young women, a country house in wartime and a scheming aristocrat - all ingredients for a cracking story with truly endearing characters -- Annie Murray, bestselling author of * Now The War Is Over *
A great read that I think will appeal to fans of wartime sagas and authors like Donna Douglas . . . From dances to disasters, encounters with handsome Yanks, rationing and relationships, The Bomb Girls has all the ingredients of an excellent wartime drama and I thoroughly enjoyed it! * Onemorepage.com *
The story is full of drama, love, heartbreak, friendship and in some parts comedy . . . It's full of twists and turns and is a real page turner * Laurahbookblog *
