Home Fires and Spitfires Summary

Home Fires and Spitfires by Daisy Styles

The heartwarming and moving story of three fascinating women finding their strength in World War II, perfect for fans of Katie Flynn, Call the Midwife and Downton Abbey
__________

It is June 1940, and as the bombs fall, the women at home must dig deep . . .

Tucked on the edge of the Lake District lies Mary Vale, a Mother and Baby Home open to unmarried women and their children. But tensions arise when three very different mums-to-be walk through the doors.

Plucky shipyard worker Gracie must overcome her shame when her lover turns out to be married. Newly engaged Diana's fiance tragically goes missing in action days before the wedding, while isolated and bedraggled Zelda turns heads when she arrives from the ghettos of Germany.

At Mary Vale, unity is key as the bombs keep falling.

But can these very different women put their differences aside to fight a common foe?

About Daisy Styles

Daisy Styles grew up in Lancashire surrounded by a family and community of strong women whose tales she loved to listen to. It was from these women, particularly her vibrant mother and Irish grandmother, that Daisy learned the art of storytelling. There was also the landscape of her childhood - wide, sweeping, empty moors and hills that ran as far as the eye could see - which was a perfect backdrop for a saga, a space big enough and wild enough to stage a drama, one about women's lives during the Second World War.
