Heartwarming, poignant Second World War saga for fans of Elaine Everest, Annie Groves and Nancy Revell
Gosport, 1941. The Bluebird Girls - Rainey Bird, Bea Herron and Ivy Sparrow - are on their way to stardom. From working mens' clubs to the glamour of the Savoy Hotel, fame and fortune beckon as the south coast's favourite singing trio work to charm their way into the hearts of the nation.
But the war rages on, and reaching the top of their game will not be easy. Blonde bombshell Bea is still dealing with the fallout of a traumatic encounter last winter. Rainey is determined to live up to her mother's belief in her, but finds herself struggling with the whirlwind of life in showbusiness. And Ivy, usually so self-possessed, is hopelessly in love...
As bombs rain down and rationing bites harder, it will take all their grit, good humour and the support of friends and family to see them through.
Can the girls keep their dream alive through Britain's darkest hour?
