Publisher's Summary

August 1941: As war sweeps across Britain and millions of men enlist, women must fight the battle on the home front. Fran always thought she would marry her childhood sweetheart and live in Massingham, the beloved pit village she has always called home. But the opening of a munitions factory in the north-east of England presents a new opportunity. Against her father's wishes and with best friends Sarah and Beth by her side, Fran signs up to join the ranks of women at the factory. It's dangerous work, but the friends discover that their lives are only just beginning.

Terrific

This book is hilarious and as a southern softie I have loved learning the words of the north like the marrows “marras “ It is also lovely to see the “marras “ are not ashamed to show their feelings where their women are concerned. Can’t wait to read another book from this author.
