    A brand new novel from the bestselling author Katie Flynn. This is book one in her first ever series about a young girl trying to make her way in war-torn Liverpool.

    Liverpool, August 1940

    As the Luftwaffe turns its attention to Liverpool, Shane Quinn decides to move his family back to the safety of Ireland. But his only child, the beautiful Dana, refuses point blank. She would rather stay and serve her country than flee to a foreign land.

    Determined to make it on her own and defy her father’s wishes, she heads to the city, only to have the door slammed in her face over and over again. Lonely and exhausted, she finally reaches the last lodging house on Staple Row. A young girl named Lucy answers the door and much to Dana’s relief, she is invited in. They quickly become firm friends and together they join the WAAF. It is here where they meet girls from all walks of life - some kind, while others downright rude.

    So begins a journey through the hardships of war where both girls will need their friendship more than ever. And when Dana discovers a terrible secret about her past, she will realise just how important family is too…
