Publisher's Summary

The war is drawing to a close, but the munitions girls are still hard at work in the factory. Gladys, who's been promoted to overseer, has been feeling lonely lately. Her daughter has moved away, and a lot of her friends have left Gosport, too.

Then an act of kindness towards Goldie, a homeless teenager, provides Gladys with a new friend and lodger. But Goldie has run away from her dangerous family - a group of local gangsters and black-market smugglers, including a particular thug, a pimp, who is determined to make the girl his. Can Gladys keep both of them safe while dealing with her own unexpected pregnancy?

Took me a while to get into .....

Having read/listened to the previous 3 books in the series I was disappointed that this book didn’t start where book 3 finished. In book 3 the story ended at Christmas 1944 but this book began at August 1944 and the beginning of the story was different to the one that book 3 ended. Must say though by this book the narrator (whom I didn’t enjoy listening to) got better than in previous books. Overall though I quite enjoyed the story but it did take me some time to actually get into it.
