Publisher's Summary

Lillian is distraught - she must register for compulsory war work. Emily is also furious - her dream job as a chef will have to be put on hold, whilst Alice must abandon her plans of college.

Staring at an identical letter, Elsie feels a kindling of hope, and down in London Agnes is packing her bags with a smile.

Sharing grief and joy, lost dreams and gained opportunities, the five new bomb girls will find friendship and strength that they never before thought possible.

Very enjoyable

5 stars for this title, the first I've read by Daisy Styles, I hope audible do more of hers, read by Anne Dover. The characters are really likeable even though there's quite a few to keep track of. The story lines are all thorough and believable. Sad for it to end.

A lovely war book with great happenings

Love reading war books and learning of the experiences the people at the time went though. If you like such stories I certainly recommend this book. Great narrator.

Bomb girls

Wonderful story and characters entwined in Britains war history. The traumas and joy the characters live through are brought to life spectacularly realistically by the talented narrator Anne Dover, she is a believable joy to listen to. This evoked such emotion in me I laughed and wept out loud, loved it and lived it and cannot recommend this story or this author highly enough. Superb!

Good story.... but....

I think the narration spoilt this book for me. There was nothing wrong with her ability but her mature voice made it hard not to imagine these young girls as mature 40something year olds! They're supposed to be late teens/early 20s! Overall I enjoyed the story, it wasn't "everything works out for everyone" kind of tale but I don't want to post any spoilers, so I won't go into detail! There are a few gaps that could do with a bit more detail and some areas that could have easily been omitted without detracting away from the story. But overall I enjoyed the story!

Could not get in to the book and I find it so long. I might give it another go
