Three girls all turn up for work, the day war is declared...Dotty has never known a life outside of the orphanage where she grew up, let alone love. Lucy is the sole carer of her little sister, now that her brother has gone to war. Annabelle has led a life of privilege but everyone has to pinch the pennies at the moment. Adjusting to life on the shop-floor at Coventry's only department store is hard enough, but then the bombs begin to fall...As the devastating effects of war come to bear on the three women, their bond deepens. One thing's for certain, the girls are going to need each other. Praise for Rosie Goodwin: "Goodwin excels in writing about relationships, the hardships of life, the ties of family and the joys of love and friendship." (Lancashire Evening Post). "Rosie is a talented storyteller." (Dee Williams).
