Courage for the Home Front girls

Bavin, Susanna2024
Books, Manuscripts
By day, Betty works cheerfully with her best friend Sally, now the manager of the salvage depot. By night, they both do their bit for the war effort as Auxiliary Fire Service girls. But Betty wishes she could do more. So when Samuel, a kind and gentle young bookseller, needs help sorting out novels to entertain the boys overseas, Betty volunteers. Anything for the troops! There might be a flashy, handsome stranger who keeps seeking her out at the depot, but she can't help enjoying Samuel's quiet humour as they work together during the blackouts. But when the worst night-time air raid they've ever seen strikes, Sally's home is destroyed. Even worse, any of Sally's treasured possessions that did survive the blast are stolen by looters. Desperate to help her friend, Betty could never have expected the guilt when she uncovers what really happened. Was it all her fault?
