A gift from Woolworths by @ElaineEverest @fayerogersuk #BlogTour


Will the war be over by Christmas?

As the war moves into 1945 the lives of the women of Woolworths continue. When store manager, Betty Billington, announces she is expecting Douglas’s baby her future life is about to change more than she expects.

Freda has fallen in love with the handsome Scottish engineer but will it end happily?

Maisie loves being a mother and also caring for her two nieces although she still has her own dreams. When her brother appears on the scene he brings unexpected danger to the family.

Meanwhile Sarah dreams of her husband’s return and a cottage with roses around the door but Woolworths beckons.

Will our girls sail into times of peace, or will they experience more heartache and sorrow? With a wedding on the horizon, surely only happiness lies ahead – or does it?

My review

Elaine has delivered another cracker to The Woolworths Girls series.

We are back with Sarah, Maisie, Freda and Betty, who have had their fair share of tears, but with a friendship like theirs, you know you’ll always have a shoulder to cry on and open arms to fall into.

Betty has everything she’s ever dreamed of, but can she ever be happy with that?

Freda has fallen in love with Sandy. Is he the man for her?

Nana Ruby, what a lovely and heartwarming woman. No matter what the war brings, you can always rely on Ruby to make everything all ok again.

Sarah has her dreams, but will she succeed in making them come true?

Nelson! Oh my heart. 😭

But those pups saw my heart bursting with joy.

A gift from Woolworths was definitely the warm hug I needed and to be back with friends, has really got me in the spirit of Christmas.

If you want a nostalgic read, then this is the book for you. I can highly recommend this book and its companions – The Woolworths girls, Carols at Woolworths (ebook novella), Christmas at Woolworths and Wartime at Woolworths. These are books worth bragging about.
