    A brilliantly written and uplifting WWII story. Annie’s latest novel set in a north-east pit village really does draw the reader in and conveys what it must have been like to be a woman working in a munitions factory during the Second World War. The three main female characters in the novel, Fran, Sarah and Beth have to endure horrendous conditions, but they do so for the sake of their country and to help their own poverty-stricken families.
    Annie Clarke’s descriptions of life on the home front in the tough mining village of Massingham are incredibly realistic, as is her use of the north-east vernacular. Girls on the Home Front is a story of friendship, resilience, community and courage. I’m sure this book will resonate with saga readers everywhere.
