Rosie Goodwin - Review Home Front Girls

book review written and read live on the bookshow by Maggie Perkovich on 11th Dec 2014

This is the sort of book you think you have read before, three different
girls being friends because they are working together in Coventry's only
Dept. store, they are totally different in birth and in upbringing.
However I found a gripping story and a well written book.
The war has jsut started, Annabelle has never worked and is angry that
circumstances at home are making her do so.
Dotty has always lived in an Orphanage and is shy and afraid, while Lucy
comes from a loving family but with her brother at war and caring for
her little special needs sister she has secrets concerning her mother
and father that she cannot share.
As war continues they all change for the better mostly but still keep
that deep friendship no matter what life throws at them.
Quite convincing and very enjoyable. Recommended. Maggie Perkovic.
