The women of Waterloo bridge

This book deserves more than five stars. It truly is a small piece of history. People need to know how and why the bridge is called the Ladies bridge.
I loved every second of this novel. Thank you so much.

THANKYOU JAN CASEY!

A brilliant story which needed to be told about the lovely women of Waterloo. Unfortunately it was told far too late for them to hear, and to know that someone wrote a great book about them
too. Thanks very much for the bridge girls, thanks Annie Aldinton for the great narration.
