 A gripping story which is full of atmosphere

This book gripped me from the start. It depicts two young women happily shopping. They do not have a care in the world. When they meet two men the fun becomes even more enticing. However War soon comes into their lives and everything changes. Loved ones are called up, the women go to work in a munitions factory and romances are fleeting.

Sophie, one of three main characters, is asked by her cousin to visit her in London, where she is in a terrible predicament. Sophie visits her and they both get caught up in the London blitz. They attempt to flee to the countryside and eventually back home to Wales. This part of the story is compelling as you followtheir journey.

A highly recommended read! [by Alex James]
