Secrets of the Homefront Girls
By Kate Thompson
The story of the courageous women of World War Two, working in the Yardley factory in London's East End
A new series from bestselling author Kate Thompson.
Although England may be at war, for the young women working the lipstick production line at Yardley's cosmetics factory, it's business as usual.
For headstrong and flirtatious Renee Gunn, that means taking Esther, a young Austrian refugee, under her wing and teaching her how to be a true East End girl.
But when Lily, Renee's older sister, suddenly returns home after six years away, it's clear that life in Stratford is changing for good.
In the face of the Blitz, could the secrets that Renee, Lily and Esther are keeping be the most dangerous weapon of all?
