The Factory Girls of Lark Lane is a heart-wrenching family saga about women in World War II, the strength of friendship and the power of hope

Can friendship get them through the struggles of war?

1940, Liverpool: Alice Turner and her best friend, Millie Markham, work for the war effort at Rootes munitions factory, making shell caps and Halifax bombers. Alice's sweetheart Terry is home from the front for a brief period of leave. She's been in love with him since school, and the women are excitedly planning a whirlwind wedding.

But the honeymoon is soon over. Terry must go back to the dangers of Nazi-occupied France, and the ever-present air raid sirens quickly bring Alice back down to earth. When a terrible explosion at the factory leads to a tragic death, Millie receives devastating news, and a loved one is announced missing in action, the heartbreak of war is suddenly all too real.

Alice must believe Terry will make it home to keep up her strength. Her mother and Millie need all her support, and morale at the factory is at an all-time low.

Can Alice and Millie help one another make it through these dark times, even as the war stretches on with no sign of an ending?

The Factory Girls of Lark Lane is a heart-wrenching family saga about women in World War II, the strength of friendship, and hope. If you're a fan of Elaine Everest, Nancy Revell and Donna Douglas, you'll love Pam Howes!
