Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

The brand-new festive Railway Girls novel set in Manchester during WWII. Perfect for fans of Nancy Revell, Daisy Styles and Margaret Dickinson.

Manchester, 1941

Christmas is the season for family and friends, and this year, the railway girls will need each other more than ever.

Dot's dear friend, Cordelia, appears to have the perfect life. When her daughter, Emily, arrives home unexpectedly, she can't wait to introduce her to her friends. But things don't go to plan, and Cordelia has to decide where her loyalty lies.

Things aren't going too smoothly for Alison, either. Her beloved boyfriend has yet to propose, but there's a charity fundraiser dance and she's dressed up specially. Surely, tonight must be the night.

Colette's friends are envious of her devoted husband. He meets her after every shift on the railway, and accompanies her around town. Colette has a secret, one that will change her life, if only she knew who to confide in.

The railway girls have survived unsettling times, and while the bombings might have eased, their own turmoil has only just begun. With Christmas fast approaching, will their wishes come true?

Another good read, deals with a sensitive subject

Another lovely listen about the antics of the Railway Girls.
Does deal with a tough topic, (domestic violence/ coersive control) which is done sensitively but is the main thread through the book, so may be a tough listen for some.

Riverting

Lovely story about ordinary people suffering hard times with resilience and humour. Tissues required often.
