Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The 10th novel in the best-selling Shipyard Girls series

December 1943.

As the war effort gathers steam in Europe, it's all hands on deck on the home front.

Gloria is over the moon to be reunited with her sweetheart, Jack. But her sons, Bobby and Gordon, are away with the Navy and still know nothing of their mother's divorce and new half-sister. 

Rosie's squad of welders must work gruelling hours in the yard as they prepare for the Allied invasion of Normandy. All the while Rosie herself waits anxiously for news of her husband, Peter, who is carrying out dangerous work as an undercover operative in France.

Meanwhile welder Dorothy has a feeling that her beau, Toby, is planning to pop the question when he's next on leave. But it seems that her head is being turned by someone closer to home.... 

It will take great strength and friendship if the shipyard girls are to weather the storms to come.

Loved it

Really enjoyed the latest book i just love all the charactors.
The narration to me is just right, and very believable, some narrators don't always do the stories they read justice,. Looking forward to the next book..

Story hardly moved along

irritating if you have been following the series, didn't leave you desperate for the next like the last book but annoyed that not enough had happened

Frustration **Spoiler Alert**

I love this series and these women so much. But, I am beyond frustrated that new things keep happening in other characters lives and Helen and Johns lives are dragged out through another book with no completion. So we are about 3 maybe even 4 or 5 books and they are just dragging on. Please give them a happy ever after already!!
