Publisher's Summary

It's 1941 and Britain is at war. For the aristocratic Walsingham family this means their grand home being taken over by the armed forces. But for newcomers Ava, Maudie and Bella, this is a chance for something more.

Each is ready to do their part for the war effort and soon become firm friends. But Lord Edward Walsingham seems like he is hiding something. And although he may be clever, he might have met his match in Maudie and the girls....

    "Code girls"

    Another Fantastic story from daisy styles, great characters lots of fun and sadness for the girls great story line,easy to get into, can't wait for her next book.
    Narrated by Anne Dover who brings each and every character to life she is the best in my opinion, hope daisy styles sticks with Anne Dover doing the narration

    Story
    "Mills and Boone"

    Thought this would be about Bletchley Park, so far (with 10 hours to go) it's a rather trite romance. Not sure I'll finish it.

    Story
    "Excellent, with real bonds of friendship"

    I have listened to many novels from audible set in world war two, but this has to be my favourite.
    I recommend it highly.
    The characters so real, the story lines weaved together beautifully. And a unique take on the type of work women were conscripted to do during the war.
    Everything was described so as to give a real sense of being there with them, and caring about what happened to them. I didn't want to leave the story, and wondered how there could be a fitting ending, but felt that was achieved.
    Without Anne Dovers excellent narration though, it wouldn't have been brought to life half as well.

    "A great 'war time' read"

    I love love LOVE books set during the first and second world wars, I find them fascinating. This was no different, brilliantly written and fabulously narrated, if you like the same kind of books, this is defo worth a listen

    Story
    "So Good"

    I always give my listens a star rating but rarely am I so pleased with a book that I write a review of it.

    This was a departure from the sort of story I normally listen to and I 'stumbled' across it as a suggestion for me. The story is of the life and loves of a group of women (and ultimately men) brought together as a result of the Second World War; the disparate group soon forge friendships that are meaningful and would last beyond the war. There was humour, love, sadness, grief, betrayal...the list could go on, all of it written so well that you really felt like you were with them. The narrator was excellent and I was sorry to get to the end of the book. I will be listening to The Bomb Girls next and hope that it will be as good as this was and that there are more offerings from this author very soon!

    If in doubt about this book...do it...its the best story I have heard all year.
