Summary

Secrets of the Jam Factory Girls is a moving saga novel of friendship set in the heart of pre-WWI London from best-selling author Mary Wood.

Elsie’s worked her way up at Swift’s Jam Factory from the shop floor to the top, and now it’s her time to shine. But when she’s involved in an incident involving her half-sister, Millie’s, new husband, she is forced to keep it secret - the truth could threaten their sisterly bond.

Dot is dogged by fear, coming to terms with her mother’s rejection of her. She should be enjoying the happiness she craves with her beloved Cess; instead, she’s trapped in an asylum, haunted by the horrifying cries of inmates. All she wants is to get married, but what chance is there for her if she’s locked away?

Millie is trying to build a life with her new husband. But the man she loves is not all he seems....

Can the Jam Factory girls create the future they all deserve?

This historical saga series begins with The Jam Factory Girls.

Really Enjoyable

This is book 2 of the trilogy and book 1 was equally good. I have pre-ordered book 3. I found the story lines to really hold my interest but the main thing was that the storyline was not dragged out for chapters before it was resolved. I am looking forward to the final book of the trilogy.
