My thanks to the publishers for my copy of this book and the invitation to be part of this blog tour

The life of a Bomb Girl isn’t usually glamourous. But Maggie is getting married, so she is going to make sure her wedding day is – even if she does have to spend every other day slaving on the factory floor.

This blasted factory was not what Julia had in mind either. She had always dreamed of attending Oxford University rather than getting her hands dirty and the easy laughter of the other women intimidate her badly.

But they are all here together in this munitions factory in a Lancashire mill town, sharing firsts, pitching in and getting on. These Bomb Girls are going to do their best at work, and in love.

“Oh, God! What have I done?” 

Long strands of Maggie’s gorgeous golden auburn hair lay on the floor at Julia’s feet whilst Maggie, for the moment happily oblivious of the disaster brought about by her best friend, continued smoking her Woodbine whilst flicking through an old magazine. When she’d permed her friend’s hair in London only a few months ago it had turned out beautifully. Gloria’s thick black hair had slipped out of the rollers in great fat gleaming ringlets which she’d pinned into a glamorous Victory roll then arm in arm Julia and Gloria had gone to the Ritz in Piccadilly and danced until the blasted air raid siren had sent the revellers running for the nearest underground station. So what had caused Maggie’s hair to fall out, too much perming lotion or too much heat from the borrowed hair dryer? With only two days to go to Maggie’s wedding day Julia had to think fast – otherwise (to avoid Maggie’s wrath) she’d have to leave the Phoenix, the cowshed – in fact the whole county of Lancashire forever! 



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.
