Publisher's Summary

As war rages, everyone has to do their bit....

Bristol 1941.

As the clouds of war grow bleaker both at home and abroad, the Tobacco Girls are determined to do their bit for king and country. To that end Maisie Miles and Bridget Milligan become voluntary ambulance drivers.

As well as coping with the frequent air raids, Maisie is kept on her toes with three new junior employees, one of whom is particularly testing. Bridget’s heart becomes torn between family loyalty and American tobacco tycoon Lyndon O’Neill III, the man she loves.

Meanwhile Phyllis Harvey has joined the WAAF, opting to serve overseas whilst trying to escape her past. Her letters home are upbeat and her friends are initially envious of descriptions of sunshine and blue sea. The truth she hides is that life on the island of Malta is fraught with extreme food shortages, daily air raids and the fear that tomorrow might never come.

The future appears far less certain as the reality of war bites into the Tobacco Girls’ lives.

Facts and Fiction interestingly combined

Bridget’s historical interest can appear somewhat contrived throughout the series. However the information given has been so eye opening. I’ve loved listening to the narratives to-date.

Another brilliant follow-on

Just like the 2 previous books, this one too holds your attention, heart in mouth moments, happy, sad and quite witty, love this series so far and can wait... well I'm going to have to, til March 2022.
Also the narrator, Penelope Freeman makes this book a pleasure to listen to, brilliant narrator.

A good book let down by the change of narrator.

I've been loving listening to this series and was excited to see what happened next, to the main characters, only to feel let down by a change of narrator. Gone are the smooth tones of Ann Dover, replaced by the gravely voice of Penelope Freeman, I don't understand why recording companies do this, it's like replacing the main actor in a tv show, hoping that everyone won't notice. It means you have to relearn the characters voices meaning you can't just settle into the story straight away.
Lizzie Lane has done it again though, a thought provoking story although a big cliff hanger leaving you wanting more.
