In 1940s London, each cobbled street is strewn with ghosts of soldiers past. And for the women, their battles are on the home front.
Flossy is embraced by the colourful mix of characters working at Trout's, who have turned their sewing expertise to war work. Dolly Doolaney, darling of the East End, helps Flossy settle into wartime life.
All of the sewing bees play their part in defending the front line, but as the Blitz hits London, can Dolly manage to contain the secret that binds them all?

"A poignant and moving story of the friendship of women during wartime Britain." (Val Wood on Secrets of the Singer Girls)
"Marvellous, full of gutsy characters I immediately empathised with." (Mararey Pemberton on Secrets of the Singer Girls)
I love learning about what happened in the ww2 .. This book is full of love sorrow and history would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good story
Another great story by Kate Thompson I hope audible continue to have any of her future titles.
I liked the little connections to the other title by her that I had previously read. As some of the characters on the fringes of this book had featured before.
I actually really liked Peggy. She was able to get over her bitterness.
Would have loved to.
Wonderful story about the people who fought on the homefront.
not really as I enjoyed it so much that I bought the first book in this series straight away as soon as I had finished this one
dolly......a brave woman who made a difference
enjoyed all of them immensely
It made me laugh out loud in parts and feel sad in others and yes I did get impatient with some of the characters as times especially Flossie who I thought was a bit flaky and sorry for herself and even said out loud a few time "get over it Girl"
yes I enjoyed the narration very much
