When Kitty hears about women being requested for war work in munitions factories her heart skips a beat. She doesn't want to leave Ireland, but the money is good. And money is what she really needs right now.
At the Lancashire factory Kitty settles into the hard work with her new friends; the dazzling Gladys, nervous Violet and comforting Lily. Working hard in the day and dancing by night, on the surface, life looks good. But Kitty has a secret. Something she needs to figure out. And it looks like she is going to need the help of her new friends before it's too late.
Daisy Styles grew up in Lancashire surrounded by a family and community of strong women. She loved to listen to their stories of life in the cotton mill, in the home, at the pub, on the dance floor, in the local church, or just what happened to them on the bus going into town. It was from these women, particularly her vibrant mother and Irish grandmother, that Daisy learnt the art of story-telling. There was also the landscape of her childhood; wide, sweeping, empty moors dappled with sunshine, thick with snow, slippery underfoot in the rain, hills that ran as far as the eye could see to the Pennine Way and beyond that to the Lake District. A perfect backdrop for a saga, a space big enough and wild enough to stage a drama about women's lives in a munitions factory during the Second World War.
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 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 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 Praise for Daisy Styles - In the Phoenix Munitions Factory everyone has their secrets . . . from the publisher's description
