Thank you!

If you could sum up Martha's Girls in three words, what would they be?

Not in three words!Loved that there is FINALLY an Audible version on Alrene Hughes' books,Especially the beginning of "Martha's Girls" trilogy!Please make the rest available on Audible as soon as possible, along with more of her other books!
If you love WWII historical romance from the British Homefront perspective such as Ellie Dean, Annie Groves, and Anne Bennett's novels, these books are for you!

Any additional comments?

I would love for Audible to make more of Anne Bennett's books as well as Pam Weaver, and other WWII Homefront books available.I'm an "Anglophile" American who wasn't even born until after WWII, but I am so impressed at the way England and the U.K. bravely battled through their own war time horrors with the hombings and everyday rationing and making do! Heroically compelling!
