    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review All thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.Can I take a step back from reviewing this book for a moment and gush about this entire sub genre instead Because I d like to gush about this sub genre.Bless war time economy in the 40s, because it paved the way for women joining the workforce, for taking up space in industries that were previously assumed to be male preserves Here were women, doing the highly skilled jobs men thought they couldn t do and they even agitated for equal pay These stories are inspiring to read and there can t be enough books about these ladies, IMO.Over to this book.Girls at the Home Front is about women from the pit colliery village of Massingham The main character Fran decides to support her family, currently living on the wages of her pit man father, by becoming a munitionette along with her friends How she navigates through a job that makes her risk her life and health every day and also deals with the problems of ...

    Girls on the Home Front is the first is a new series from Annie Clarke and it follows the ups and downs of a group of young women and their families during the war years The women live in the village of Massingham, the focal point of which is the pit which sustains many a family although with this job it brings plenty of danger and worry on a daily basis Now that war has broken out the women step into new roles they would never have thought possible pre war Fran, Sarah and Betty begin secret war work at a factory they are taken to by bus each day But the results of this work are clear for all their families and the villagers to see so it is not so secret even though if anyone speaks of it there will be grave consequences.The story follows the group as they become accustomed to this new way of life working long shifts in the factory We also get a very detailed insight into the lives of the men who work in the pit In many of the previous war time family saga books that I have read the men only ever briefly feature as they are away fighting so it was different and refreshing to see that they played a prominent role in this book The war, although ever present in the hearts and minds of the villagers as it has an impact on their daily lives, didn t have a prominent role to play so the focus was on how the women coped in the factory and the men in the mines.Fran had been a typist in an office but with her family situation at home changing and women needed to work in the f...

    Girls on the Home Front is the first book in Annie Clarke s new Factory Girls wartime saga series and I m already hooked From the very start, I was engrossed in the lives of Fran, Sarah, Beth and their families and as the book progressed I couldn t put this warm, authentic and compelling novel down.The novel opens on the three friends first day working in a new factory and before they start, they are warned of the vital safety procedures and informed that their war work is top secret, meaning they aren t allowed to tell anybody about what it is they do When they meet one of their supervisors, Mrs Raydon and realise she lost her hand after a mishap with a detonator, they begin to comprehend just how dangerous their new job really is It s eye opening and rather humbling to realise that these young women are only nineteen and yet are entrusted with these arduous and deeply risky tasks at a time when they should have been their most carefree.Girls on the Home Front is set in Massingham, a small pit village in the North East and alongside the dramas in the factory, it also features life in the mines and how much such an existence becomes integral to the very soul of the community sustained and shaped by it Fran s father is angered by his daughter s decision to work in the factory, having hoped she d find a job as a typist and at first, it does appear as if he is the archetypal short tempered, patriarchal, head of the family It soon becomes clear, however, th...

    This is book 1 in the Factory Girls series It follows the stories of three women who are left behind at home whilst the men serve their country fighting in Europe Fran, and her best friends Sarah and Beth come from the small pit village of Massingham but when a new factory opens up, the three women feel it s their duty to play their part in the war and sign up to work in the factory, no matter how dangerous this may be.This book not only gives us the story of Fran and her friends wanting to do something worthwhile for their country in the middle of the war, but also how difficult it was for the women who were left behind I loved the characters, particularly Fran, and really connected with them all The story is really well written and obviously well researched, showing us what awful and dangerous conditions these women had to work in They certainly never had the same health and safety regulations that we have today It also gives us a good insight as to what it was really like, not just that there was a war on, but both emotionally and financially for the families left behind I couldn t begin to imagine what they must have gone ...
