As men toiled on the front lines, back home the munitionettes made the armaments and fought battles all their own.
London, 1917. Lizzie Fenwick is young, ambitious, and in love. At least, she thinks she’s in love with the soldier who answered the note she concealed in a box of ammunition shells. She spends her days filling shells with TNT, and her nights dreaming of the mysterious Harry Slater.
Eunice Wilson knows the exact moment her marriage to Jack began to fracture. He refused to enlist, and their patriotic neighbours never let her live it down. Now he’s been conscripted and she can’t help but feel regret for shunning Jack before his departure.
As separate tragedies cause Lizzie to make hard choices and Eunice to cope with loss, the two women are unsure how to adjust when peace finally returns. Little do they know that an earlier war-time betrayal will force Lizzie and Eunice to confront everything they knew about friendship, loyalty, and love.
I loved this book, it is such a compelling story that you just get swept away with the romance and the fact it is set in 1917. I loved the characters in this book, the way the book is written is just brilliant I love reading books that are set in the past. So much description that I was sad when I finished it. Will definitely look out for more of this author’s books.
