Publisher's Summary

Nothing will stop the the Tobacco Girls, not even war....

Bristol 1940.

The Tobacco Girls cling together as they realise that the clouds of war are turning dark, the world is becoming more dangerous and their lives more unpredictable. 

Bridget Milligan’s big, happy family fragments when her siblings are evacuated to North Devon, then a letter from America further fills her with dismay.

Maisie Miles safe haven from both Eddie Bridgeman and her father is jeopardised, and she is forced to move on, but where to this time?

Phyllis Mason is struck down by tragedy, and her life spirals downwards into despair until a new horizons beckons, but also perhaps great danger....

Regardless of the rationing, shortages and an ever-worsening situation, the Tobacco Girls all pull together and hope for better days to come.

An excellent follow on book

I loved the first book in this series, but I loved this one even more, the more you get to know these girls the more you feel you personally know them and root for them in their day to day lives, I love the descriptive words that Lizzie uses in these books and I'm very much looking forward to listening to book 3, which I already have. fully recommend this series.

Love this series.

I really like how the writing of Lizzie Lane captures the essence of Bristol during WW2 and the details of the characters and narration conjure up a believable picture of the times. I felt I could reflect on ‘a woman’s lot’ and be grateful for how far we’ve come. I appreciate there are more realistic works, but these books are a really good read. I will be listening to the next one.
