Born in Maidstone, Kent, in 1945, the thirteenth child of fifteen children, Mary’s family settled in Leicestershire after

‘her writing retreat’.
After many jobs from cleaning to catering, all chosen to fit in with bringing up her family, and boost the family money-pot, Mary ended her 9 – 5 working days as a Probation Service Officer, a job that showed
her another side to life, and which influences her writing, bringing a realism and grittiness to her novels

Renowned for her family sagas, Mary Wood has delivered two stories in one. Set against the backdrop
of the Second World War we meet Molly, forced to follow a path against her will as her father becomes involved with the local gangsters. Then there is Flo's story, a clever working-class girl who is recruited to work at Bletchley Park. For a large part of
the book their stories are separate but I loved how they intertwined and the two girls, despite their differences became friends. This is not a light romance- some of the events are quite harrowing - yet through it all friendship and romance triumph, just
not always in the way that we might imagine. Beautifully told by a true raconteur.
