Book review 

I have this book to my teenage bookworm of a daughter to read and told her to let me know what she thought.

She enjoyed the book very much and loved how clever it was that each woman had their own individual story tied to the war and Woolworths.

Ot was very well written and she look forward to reading more of Elaine’s work in the future.
