Summary

Will the war be over by Christmas?

As the war moves into 1945, the lives of the women of Woolworths continue. When store manager Betty Billington announces she is expecting Douglas’ baby, her future life is about to change more than she expects.

Freda has fallen in love with the handsome Scottish engineer, but will it end happily?

Maisie loves being a mother and also caring for her two nieces, although she still has her own dreams. When her brother appears on the scene, he brings unexpected danger to the family.

Meanwhile Sarah dreams of her husband’s return and a cottage with roses around the door, but Woolworths beckons.

Will our girls sail into times of peace, or will they experience more heartache and sorrow? With a wedding on the horizon, surely only happiness lies ahead - or does it?

A Gift from Woolworths is the next installment in Elaine Everest's much-loved Woolworths series.

A gift from Woolworths

Oh what a novel. This book warmed my heart. With knitting in hand and a cosy chair next to the log fire, I was transported to an era I do not know. An era, a shop, and many people who I have come to love from other novels by Elaine Everest.
The last chapter had me wondering if this would be the end of Sarah, George, Ruby, Maisie, Betty , and all the others. It seemed so final. I do hope not! The lives of these people are so very appealing and interesting.
Thank you Elaine For the wonderful book. And thank you Annie Aldington for bringing the characters to life.
