Christmas at Woolworths

Christmas at Woolworths 

by Elaine Everest

 

Even though there was a war on, the Woolworths girls brought Christmas cheer to their customers

Best friends Sarah, Maisie and Freda are brought together by their jobs at Woolworths. With their loved ones away on the front line, their bonds of friendship strengthen each day. Betty Billington is the manager at Woolworths, and a rock for the girls, having given up on love . . . Until a mysterious stranger turns up one day – could he reignite a spark in Betty?

As the year draws to a close, and Christmas approaches, the girls must rely on each other to navigate the dark days that lie ahead . . .

With so much change, can their friendship survive the war?

Another excellent read from Elaine Everest just in time for Christmas. I enjoyed reading about the friends and the story set against the backdrop of WW2. It was also nice to see that romance isn't just for the young 'uns as Betty Billington begins to wonder if she could ever love again. As I read the book I could easily see it unfold as a TV drama. Wonderfully evoked and some great characters.
