Publisher's Summary

As London goes up in flames during the Blitz, two sisters from Bermondsey find their lives changed out of all recognition....
When a bombing raid destroys nearly everything she holds dear, May joins the ATS and becomes a gunner girl. Peggy, May's elder sister, is trapped in a stifling marriage, yet amid the chaos of war, a route to freedom beckons. From war will come hardship and tragedy as well as new, unexpected friendships and love affairs.

The right mix

Once I got into this book I found I didn't want it to end, warm characters, brought to life by Anne's reading. Good mix of factual info about the Ats roles, the training & positions the girls took, combined with real likeable main characters. Favourites May, and Granny Byron, and favourite description - the fairy ring.
It would've been nice to have a sequel.
