Synopsis

'Cheerful and uplifting...I enjoyed it immensely' Sunday Times bestseller Katie Fforde









Readers love Marlow's Department Store!





`Excellent book, want more... ` 5* Amazon reviewer





`Such a good read!' 5* Goodreads reviewer



It's 1941 and young Lily Collins is starting work in Midlands department store Marlow's, whose gleaming facade has fascinated her since childhood.





As the air raid sirens blare, Lily learns the ropes from her sophisticated boss Miss Frobisher alongside shy fellow junior Gladys. But her burgeoning friendship with young salesman Jim draws her into a swirl of secrets within the store. And with the war progressing to crisis point, Cedric Marlow and his staff must battle nightly bombings and the absence of loved ones to keep going.





From a former writer of The Archers comes a novel that weaves together a powerful sense of community and a vivid evocation of a time when every man, woman and child was doing their bit.







'Jo writes with a sure hand and a light touch...It's a real page-turner with a spirited heroine who will worm her way into readers' hearts. A sparkling new voice in fiction.' Sunday Times bestseller Veronica Henry
