Fascinating. Highly recommended!! The lives of 4 girls who worked for a sugar company in England. The history of the time - just after World War Two - was riveting. Each girl was unique and each life interesting. Great non- fiction. Other excellent fiction and non- fiction writers during World War One and Two and after are - William Jarvis, Judith Lennox, Margaret Mayhew, Melynda Jarrett, Vera F. Cracknell Long, Eileen Townsend, Pamela Winfield, Soraya Lane, Anne DeCourcy, and Iris Jones Simantel. I enjoyed GI Brides also written by Duncan Barrett. A++++++Was this review helpful?
