About The Book:
The fifth book in the compelling saga series The Shipyard Girls by Sunday Times bestselling author Nancy Revell, The Shipyard Girls series follows an eclectic group of women who go to work in the Sunderland shipyards during the Second World War and their daily trials with love, loss and living through war.

Inspired by her own close family links to the Sunderland shipyards and her campaign to get the brave women who worked there during WWII recognized for their service.
Sunderland, 1942

With the war showing no sign of abating, Helen is thriving in her role as shipyard manager. But at home the return of her father brings a shocking discovery that tears her family apart.

Gloria is shouldering the burden of a terrible secret. If the truth comes out there could be dire consequences, and it will take all her resolve to resist the pressure around her.

Meanwhile Rosie is throwing herself into her work, taking on as many shifts as she can. Anything to keep her mind off the fact that she hasn’t heard from her sweetheart in month...

With life in the shipyards tougher than ever, will the strength of their friendship see them through to victory?
About the Author:
Nancy Revell is the pen name of writer and journalist Amanda Revell Walton, who has worked for the national press for the past 25 years, providing them with hard-hitting news stories and in-depth features. 

She has also worked for just about every woman’s magazine, writing amazing and inspirational true life stories.

The Forgotten Women who helped win World War Two.

While land girls, the WVS and the many women who worked in the factories are often applauded, the part women played in the country’s shipbuilding industry during the Second World War is too often forgotten. 

Nancy is passionate about throwing a spotlight on these forgotten heroines – women who have never been commended for the hard, gruelling and dangerous work they did to help Britain win the war.

I am partnering with Rachel Kennedy of Penguin Random House UK/Arrow Publishing for this giveaway.
