I always look forward to reading Margaret Dickinson's books each year. We think of London as being the city most attacks and damage were and tend to forget other cities suffered just as much. Nice story line but nothing outstanding this time but a relaxing read. As always Ms Dickinson gives the reader rich and interesting characters that hold the readers attention.

It had a true ring of authenticity, as my mother, grandmother and aunts talked about those times all during my childhood, and my mother, just like the girl in the story, was actually in the town centre on the night of the blitze.

When war is declared Rose s Peggy working as a clippie on Sheffield's tram system. Even their mother Mary found happiness, after years of struggling to raise her three daughters became a clippie and found love. Back to top.
I didn't give this five stars as although the settings were well-researched, the dialogue was pure twenty first century.

It is such a good story line that when you get to the end of a chapter you want to keep reading another,and another,and If you have not read Margaret Dickinson's books before but have read and liked Annie Groves then you will definitely like this one. I was so pleased that Peggy, Rose, and even their younger sister Myrtle had their wishes fulfilled. Took a while to figure out who was who but probably me being thick. The story with its main characters being the two eldest sisters Peggy and Rose, their ambitions, their family quarrels about the shame brought on the family, the anger and hurt passion that finally brought them closer together with accepted love from the ones that affected their daily life.
It's a good story from start to finish and has some amazing twists and turns. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes WW2 fiction.

I have got quite a few of Margaret Dickinson. Customer reviews. Please try again later. DPReview Digital Photography.
A really enjoyable read, and a trip down memory lane for me as I was born during the Sheffield blitz, and in the area where this book is set. I have thought for quite a while that too many home front stories are about the London blitz, so it was good to read a story about a northern blitz. It may have taken a couple of tries to get "The Clippie Girls" but it was worth it. Shopbop Deer Fashion Brands. Thankyou to Margaret Dickinson.
Although it may not be the kind of adventure story I regularly read, it was full of good descriptions of family life in a big northern city during world war 2.

As I was born just after the war I have an interest in life in those days, and I enjoyed this story and feel it was true to life. Peggy and Rose become 'clippies' due to the shortage of men going off to war. Filter by.
