I decided to read these in order, so bought the first one.... I have not been disappointed since being caught up in the world of the Foyles bookshop ladies and their lives during the war! I found the prose easy to read but engaging, and the plotline kept my interest throughout. Highly recommend this to any saga lover.
I cannot wait for Christmas at Foyles!

The happy-ever-afters Molly read about in the pages of her beloved books have been lost to the war. And yet the munitions girls unite through their sense of duty and friendships that blossom in the most unlikely of settings...
