Publisher's Summary

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. During the day, head welder Rosie teaches her fledgling flock of trainees their new trade, but at night she hides a secret life. And mother hen Gloria signs up to escape her brutal husband, but finds she cannot run from her problems. The Shipyard Girls start off as strangers - but end up forging an unbreakable bond of friendship in the most difficult times.

Not just for women

NOT JUST A WOMANS BOOK , after a couple of men had said it was good so I downloaded it as I just don’t have time to read, drawn in and hooked, angry at some characters, shouting at others, rooting for some, very accurate portrayal in certain chapter, very enjoyable book to pass the time driving to work, hopefully book 2 is available on download soon, cmon audible sort it out

Abrupt ending. Too many loose ends.

The story wasn't finished well. Too many loose ends when the book ends. So much so that I thought I had moved it on a few chapters without realising.

not written well

author keeps going off on a independent tangent not sticking to story line
