Girls of Summer : An Ashes Year with the England Women's Cricket Team Paperback / softback
The year 2015 was a historic one for the England women's cricket team, their first full year as professional players and with every ball of their Ashes series live on television and radio.
As the dramatic events of the summer unfolded, David Tossell was given exclusive access to follow at close quarters, from freezing training mornings in the dead of winter to the dressing room and team meetings in the heat of battle against Australia.
Under the guidance of a coach who cared deeply about their performance and welfare, a diverse group of girls came together in the pursuit of international glory and personal achievement, united by a remarkable love for each other and a passion for their profession.
As The Girls of Summer reveals, they would need every piece of resilience and resolve those bonds could offer.
With a foreword by England captain Charlotte Edwards.
