Summary

Even though there was a war on, the Woolworths girls brought Christmas cheer to their customers.

Best friends Sarah, Maisie and Freda are brought together by their jobs at Woolworths. With their loved ones away on the front line, their bonds of friendship strengthen each day. Betty Billington is the manager at Woolworths and a rock for the girls, having given up on love...until a mysterious stranger turns up one day - could he reignite a spark in Betty?

As the year draws to a close and Christmas approaches, the girls must rely on each other to navigate the dark days that lie ahead....

With so much change, can their friendship survive the war?

Christmas at Woolworths is the heartfelt sequel to Elaine Everest's best-selling debut The Woolworths Girls.

A cosy read!!

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters are wonderfully brought to life by the very good narrator (who I must admit sounds a bit like Barbara Windsor at times!). I enjoyed the WW2 setting and characters storylines. I think it's a very enjoyable book for readers of a certain age, and especially for anyone who was a Woolworths worker in the 40s, 50s and 60s as I was. The author has obviously researched her subject very well.

Nice story

If you like any storyline about the war you'll like this easy going story. A large misfit family that weld together nicely with all their different jobs, as well as my favorite store that I loved in the 1970's. Very interesting.

Loved it!

I will be listening to the others in the series, for sure! Also ordered the first book, which is not on Audible, on Amazon. Will be missing the superb reading, though...
