From the Sunday Times bestselling author, Nancy Revell. This is her second novel in the compelling Shipyard Girls series.
Nancy Revell is the author of the Shipyard Girls series, which is set in the north-east of England during World War II. She is a former journalist who worked for all the national newspapers, providing them with hard-hitting news stories and in-depth features. Nancy also wrote amazing and inspirational true life stories for just about every woman's magazine in the country. When she first started writing the Shipyard Girls series, Nancy relocated back to her hometown of Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, along with her husband, Paul, and their English bull mastiff, Rosie. They now live just a short walk away from the beautiful award-winning beaches of Roker and Seaburn, within a mile of where the books are set. The subject is particularly close to Nancy's heart as she comes from a long line of shipbuilders, who were well known in the area.
THE SECOND SHIPYARD GIRLS NOVEL. 1941: it takes strength to
work on the docks, but the war demands all hands on deck and the
women are doing their best to fill the gap. Rosie is flourishing in
her role as head-welder, Gloria is hiding her own little secret,
and the shipyards are proving tougher than Polly ever imagined. *
from the publisher's description *
Arrow have a speciality in publishing these sweeping historical novels. It is easy to see why the genre is so popular in general, but also why Nancy Revell's books are so popular. Researched within an inch of its life; the novel is enjoyably entertaining. A perfect way to spend hours, wrapped up in the characters' lives. This is the second book in The Shipyard Girls saga and it is not only just as good as the first, but a perfect continuation. Recommended reading. * Frost Magazine *

Nancy creates strong characters that come alive as you read. I loved finding out about their individual journeys. Nancy writes about some serious issues but she writes it in such away that it is also filled with hope that things will get better. If you love reading about strong women, love and family in time of war this is a book for you. * chellsandbooks *
