‘This is an irresistible tale of friendship, love and heartache during WW2 that had me enthralled. Joan, Bea and Edie are ordinary young women with extraordinary courage, who put their lives at risk each day on the anti-aircraft guns. Wartime London has never seemed so real. Clare Harvey’s research is intimate and impressive – I loved all the details of daily life. She captures the dislocation, both mental and physical, that wartime imposes, and I was gripped from the first dramatic page. A vivid and beautifully crafted read that will captivate hearts’ – Sunday Times bestselling author Kate Furnivall
