    "The heartwarming story of men and women who worked together during World War II." The setting is a neighborhood in England someplace, maybe London. The plotting is tight and superb. There is even a love story at the end.

    I love Monica Dickens. She has an amazing ability (like her great-grandfather) to describe people and places so well that they come right off the page. This novel was written and set during the 2nd World War in munitions factory.

    I have to admit skim reading the last half as wanted to know what happened without having to read every word. I last read Monica Dickens in my teens and remember how much I enjoyed Joy and Josephine. This book was an interesting read as social history of 1945 before the war had ended but not all that gripping. There's no doubt Monica Dickens was a born storyteller though, the characters are very believable it's just that not much really happens if judging by today's standards.
