MY REVIEW

It feels wonderful to be back in the company of The Railway Girls once more, and in this 3rd book in the series, we get to witness more of the day to day goings on in the life of these women as they cope with life during the war, alongside their own personal dramas - and there's always lots going on in their work and family lives to explore!

Life in Manchester in 1941 is ticking along - the women are settling in their new roles, and are just happy to be doing what they can to help at this time. They feel useless when they're not doing anything, so their new jobs give them a purpose. It still doesn't get any easier though living life with the fear of air raids on a daily basis, but it has to! And Mabel, Joan and Dot are finding life is not getting any simpler!

You really get a great sense of the time with the way the story is written, and get to experience life in the 40's through these women and the issues facing them at the time. Shocking secrets from the past are also revealed and goes to show that what you believe to be true is not always as it seems, and that support of family and friends really comes to the front throughout as events play out.

This series never seems to disappoint with the drama and history, and showing that life for these women is anything but simple, and I love losing myself in their stories in each book. Can't wait for more!!

★★★★★
