Summary

Sunderland, 1940, and the women go to the shipyards to do their bit for the war effort. Polly never dreamed she would be able to work in the shipyards like the men in her family but times are tough and her new job ends up giving her more than she ever expected when she meets enigmatic dock diver Tommy Watts. During the day, head welder Rosie teaches her fledgling flock of trainees their new trade, but at night she hides a secret life. And mother hen Gloria signs up to escape her brutal husband, but finds she cannot run from her problems. The Shipyard Girls start off as strangers - but end up forging an unbreakable bond of friendship in the most difficult times.

Beautiful story

What a beautiful story. All walks of life come together, all to help to the war effort.
Sad and happy at times and also wishing some of the couples get it together.. But brilliant story.
I recommend people to buy this wonderful story.

More Shipyard Girls Series, PLEASE!?!

I really hope Audible will make sure to finish Nancy Revell’s book series here. They already have Book #2, which I’m ready to start. But there are at least 3 more books to this series.
I love Amazon Kindle, however once I start listening to a series (like Ellie Dean’s Beach View Boarding House books), I want to finish up the same way.
I know I can’t be the only American who loves WWII Home Front books from a British
perspective?!
