Summary

London, 1914: one ordinary day, three girls arrive for work at London's renowned Foyles bookshop. But when war with Germany is declared, their lives will never be the same again.... 

Alice has always been the 'sensible' one in her family - especially in comparison with her suffrage-supporting sister! But decidedly against her father's wishes, she accepts a job at Foyles Bookshop; and for bookworm Alice it's a dream come true. But with the country at war, Alice's happy world is shattered in an instant. Determined to do what she can, Alice works in the bookshop by day and risks her own life driving an ambulance around bomb-ravaged London by night. But however busy she keeps herself, she can't help but think of the constant danger those she loves are facing on the front line.... 

Alice, Victoria and Molly couldn't be more different, and yet they share a friendship that stems back to their childhood - a friendship that provides everyday solace from the tribulations and heartbreak of war.

BRILLIANT

I loved it! I felt like I was there with them all. I liked all the characters except Luke at first, but then I warmed to him.

Boring

This book was extremely slow paced, and the ending was very anti-climatic. I won't listen to any more of this series.
