Summary

A sequel to The Hopscotch Summer. Molly Fox has grown up in the back streets of Birmingham at the mercy of her cruel grandfather and her drunken mother. Though she has grown into a tall, beautiful woman, Molly is haunted by terrible family secrets. When she is found lying drunk in a gutter, Molly reaches a turning point. She decides to escape by joining the army as an ATS girl.

At first her new start seems fated to be a disaster but the army gives her the encouragement she hungers for and soon her life is flourishing. But war brings tragedy as well as triumph, and when Molly receives news from home, it becomes clear that she can't escape her past so easily….

Brilliant - NOT a typical romance book - Recommend

A great sequel to A Hopscotch Summer, this book had me hooked from the beginning. Its the story of a personal struggle to find identity overcoming many obstacles and ultimately not ending as one would expect from this type of book. Recommended.

Loved Soldier Girl!

Listened to it as a follow on from Hopscotch summer . Sad at times following the life of Molly but also uplifting. Can't wait to start the third book in the series to see what happens to Molly & if she finds love and happiness! Well worth the listen. Found the Birmingham accent iterating used for some if the characters irritating at times but I got used to it.
