Summary

Can romance blossom in times of trouble?

It's 1938 and as the threat of war hangs over the country, Sarah Caselton is preparing for her new job at Woolworths. Before long, she forms a tight bond with two of her colleagues: the glamorous Maisie and shy Freda. The trio couldn't be more different, but they immediately form a close-knit friendship, sharing their hopes and dreams for the future.

Sarah soon falls into the rhythm of her new position, enjoying the social events hosted by Woolies and her blossoming romance with young assistant manager, Alan. But with the threat of war clouding the horizon, the young men and women of Woolworths realize that there are bigger battles ahead. It's a dangerous time for the nation, and an even more perilous time to fall in love...

The first in Elaine Everest's Woolworths series, The Woolworths Girls is followed by the festive sequel, Christmas at Woolworths.

Wonderful wartime saga

I fell in love with the characters from the first chapter it made me laugh and cry. This is an excellent book and so happy that the saga continues.

Memories

Couldn’t switch it off. I worked in the Southampton (Shirley) branch 1964. I still have my Employment card when I was a counter assistant. I enjoyed my time there and have many memories.
