Synopsis

The Shipyard Girls by Nancy Revell

Sunderland, 1940, and the women go to the shipyards to do their bit for the war effort. Polly never dreamed she would be able to work in the shipyards like the men in her family but times are tough and her new job ends up giving her more than she ever expected when she meets enigmatic dock diver Tommy Watts.

Reviews

A riveting read is just what this is in more ways than one. * The Northern Echo * I have just finished The Shipyard Girls and enjoyed it very much indeed . . . It has all the essentials of a good saga: well-drawn, believable, sympathetic characters, storylines which keep the reader turning the page and a very authentic background . . . The special bond that develops between the women makes it a very well rounded novel and will I'm sure have readers eagerly awaiting the next book in the series. -- Lyn Andrews I had read The Shipyard Girls and enjoyed it tremendously, so much so that I bought Nancy's second book. Strong characters and an absorbing story-line. Can't wait to read her third novel. -- Rosie Archer, author of The Gunpowder and Glory Girls The Shipyard Girls is just wonderful. Heartfelt, pacy and gutsy, I adore it already and will no doubt be devouring the rest of the series with just as much enthusiasm. -- Fiona Ford, author The Spark Girl
