Summary

Sunderland, 1943: With the future of Britain so uncertain, the women are trying to keep their lives at home on an even keel.

Head-welder Rosie is just about managing to keep her double life hidden from little sister Charlotte’s prying eyes. But Charlotte is nothing if not determined and, with a secret this big, something is bound to leak.

And there is something odd about yard manager Helen’s newest recruit Bel. But in resolving to uncover the truth, Helen might discover more than she bargained for....

Only by rallying together will the shipyard girls finally triumph.

Just regurgitated bits of the saga

Pointless book just reflecting and repeating parts of the story we already know. Don't bother

Ending next tine..... please

Although this series has been fantastic I really think you’ve had a good run and it should now tie up loose ends and put it to bed. It is now just frustrating not to finish!

Another Triumph

Absolute love these shipyard girls. I now feel like I know them all personally, their families, their trials and their joy! I never give anything away on book reviews as it's enough to know that these books are wonderfully written. If you are interested in the work that young women had to do during the second world war, their ups and downs associated with hard times, but also love and friendship. You'll love these books. The ending of this book was something I never saw coming. But I cannot wait for the next book!

The story is excellent, well written and read. Having listened to all eight books in order I feel I know the characters. The narrator is very good.

Excellent

Very good story at the end but a lot of stuff said over and over again which was told in the other books I think the book would of been a lot better if they had of focused on the story line at the end but as I said still a very good book can’t wait to start the next book to find out what happens what a cliffhanger at the end
