Summary

Can their friendship survive the struggles of war? 

The East End of London, 1940. Life is tough for the Ten Bells Street girls. Best friends from childhood, the three of them now find themselves scattered across London, bearing the weight of war apart. 

Exiled from the East End, Rose has created a new life for herself and now works as a dancer in a club in Soho, but she soon finds that life in the West End isn't any easier than what she left behind. With the arrival of the war, Becky has finally found work as a nurse, but as the bombs continue to fall she struggles to cope with the damage that surrounds her. Bernie has achieved a lifelong dream of becoming a professional photographer but has never felt more distanced from her family and her life in the East End. 

Separated by circumstances, the girls' friendship stands strong in the face of hardship as they fight for their place in a frightening new world. One way or another, love will pull them through....

Spoilt by totally unnecessary swearing

I enjoy most books on this subject and am far from being a prude, but the amount of totally unnecessary bad language point the whole thing. Mary Collins is now off my list of favourite authors.
