The new Liverpool-based World War Two saga from the author of Goodnight Sweetheart and Some Sunny Day is the story of tomboy Sam, keen for adventure in the ATS, and Sally, a young mother desperate to hold her family together. When Sam Grey joins the ATS, she wants to find adventure, not end up in office work. But when she's posted to Liverpool, that's what she's allocated. Sam wants to show that she's as brave as any man, and when she doesn't get the chance her lively nature leads her into confrontation with her authoritarian boss. Sparks also fly when she encounters Johnny, whose heroic work in bomb disposal makes him very attractive to many women -- but Sam's determined not to fall for his charm. Sally wants nothing more than to protect her small children while her husband is a prisoner of war. She works hard doing shifts in a factory and singing at the Grafton ballroom, confessing to no-one the shameful reason why she needs two jobs. But help is at hand, from a most unlikely source. Annie Groves is fast becoming one of Liverpool's favourite saga writers. This stirring tale of women fighting together to do their bit for their country, keep their families together and finding love and fulfilment in the process will delight her fans and win her many more.
