Publisher's Summary

Hattie finds herself relegated to the factory floor on her return from the war. Her workmates are unforgiving at Hattie's attempt to raise herself up, and she is soon ostracised. After journeying to Australia to marry her husband, Clara is betrayed and returns penniless, homeless and trying to raise a child alone.

Lou's daughter and parents are killed by a bomb blast. By day she works at the factory; by night she roams the bomb sites, half mad with grief. These women forge a bond that will ultimately allow them to find hope.

    "Not For Me"

    This has to be the most boring book I’ve ever read or listened to. The plot is thin and predictable while the characters are uninteresting and un-engaging . It tells a story in 27 chapters that could have easily been told in 5 but for me it needn’t have been told at all. Sorry this just wasn’t my thing.
