A Gift from Woolworths by Elaine Everest #blogtour
I am delighted to be involved in the blog tour for A Gift from Woolworths.
Will the war be over by Christmas?
As the war moves into 1945 the lives of the women of Woolworths continue. When store manager, Betty Billington, announces she is expecting Douglas’s baby her future life is about to change more than she expects.
Freda has fallen in love with the handsome Scottish engineer but will it end happily?
Maisie loves being a mother and also caring for her two nieces although she still has her own dreams. When her brother appears on the scene he brings unexpected danger to the family.
Meanwhile Sarah dreams of her husband’s return and a cottage with roses around the door but Woolworths beckons.
Will our girls sail into times of peace, or will they experience more heartache and sorrow? With a wedding on the horizon, surely only happiness lies ahead – or does it?
This time last year I was reading Christmas at Woolworths and becoming acquainted with Freda, Betty, Maisie and Sarah. Opening up the pages of A Gift from Woolworths felt like catching up with old friends.
Despite the war, life goes on for the four friends and their families. More pain and sorrow has found its way into their lives as the war has claimed more souls, so the girls have learned just how important it is to appreciate every happy moment.
Every step of their path seems to be fraught with danger, betrayal and devastation. However, once again, their friendship, strength and determination helps them to fight for their chance at happiness. Overcoming obstacles is hard, but with an army of friends and family by your side, it is no longer an unsurmountable feat.
It is now 1945 and the end of the war is in sight, but will happiness inevitably follow? Join Betty, Freda, Sarah and Maisie as they continue on their adventure...
I love this series! Each book can be read as a stand alone, but once you've read one, you'll definitely want to read them all! All the characters are brilliantly written, even the ones you'll love to hate! Grab yourself a copy and enjoy!
Thank you to the publisher for sending me a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
