Gunner Girls and Fighter Boys, Paperback

Gunner Girls and Fighter Boys Paperback

Part of the The Factory Girls series


London, 1939. As the Blitz hits London, two sisters from Bermondsey find their lives changed out of all recognition.

May is known to her family as the homing pigeon because of her uncanny sense of direction.

She will need it when a bombing raid destroys nearly everything she holds dear.

With her home in ruins, she joins the ATS and becomes a gunner girl.

Here she finds dangerous work, new friends and rivals - and painful choices in love.

May's elder sister, Peggy, is trapped in a stifling marriage to a small-time crook.

Amid the chaos of war, a route to freedom suddenly beckons and, along with it, new and passionate love.

From the melting pot of war will come hardship and tragedy, as well as new, unexpected friendships and love affairs.
