Publisher's Summary

It's 1938, and 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, as well as beginning a blossoming romance with young assistant manager Alan.

But with the threat of war clouding the horizon, the young employees 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....

    "Well written 'cosy' story."

    A cosy story about the girls working in Woolworths and their lives during WW2. Nicer easy to read book. Just right with a cu of rea and a pleasant evening in.

    Like a good old fashioned story,or a true crime book. Something not drawn out or a slow storyline.

    Story
    "I was a Woolworth girl 1965/66"

    What a lovely story. I too was a Woolworth Saturday girl. It was my first job. I worked in the Bedford branch in 1965/66 and I loved it.

    This brought back so many memories. I wasn't alive in the war either, but, could imagine how it must have been. This story emphasised how many women coped and survived with such strength. Loved this book from beginning to end. Thank you.
