Publisher's Summary

1942. Sixteen-year-old Poppy Percival turns up at Trout's clothing factory to start work as a seamstress.

Poppy harbours a secret - one from which she is still suffering. But she's not the only one with a secret. Each of her new friends at the factory is hiding something painful.

The war will throw their lives into turmoil but also bring these women closer to each other than they could ever have imagined.

    "Absolutely Superb !"

    What a fantastic book with brilliant narration ... You get so drawn into this story, that you begin to think you are actually there with the characters.. several parts of it had me in tears, it was so poignant & as I can relate to Bethnal Green it made it all the more so....
    A cracking good book & especially the dedication at the end..... which is so worth listening to.

    Story
    "An emotional roller coaster."

    An incredible story of women pulling together through the adversity of the Second World War in Bethnal Green. I wasn't sure that this was my sort of book but I loved every minute of it. Once it gets going the pace is fast and you don't know where the next revelation is coming from. The book was obviously very well researched as the historic details are spot on. I would recommend this to anyone.

    "Fantastic Story"

    Not the usual story I would go for but was really enjoyable and had me gripped. I knew nothing of the Bethnal Green tube tragedy so learnt a lot whilst listening. Can't wait for Kate Thompson's next book now. Great writer who I'd highly recommend.
    I did find the narrator irritating as she changed accents and voices and sometimes forgot who's voice was who's. Would have preferred her to not act out and just read. But that may just be my personal taste. This was my first audio book so could be the normal thing.

    "Disappointing"

    Some of the book was excellent but I was disappointed how the second half of the book missed out large chunks of important events.
