IT'S SAGA SATURDAY!! **BLOG TOUR** The Tobacco Girls by Lizzie Lane...



Well, this book caused me a whole lot of trouble because... now I have to wait to read the next instalment in what promises to be a fabulous series! This is the first book I have read by Lizzie Lane but it will not be the last - there is nothing I love more than a series involving sisters or female friends living, working and surviving life's difficulties side by side.

This book follows Maisie, Phyllis and Bridget as they work together at a Bristol tobacco factory during the lead up to WWII - it was an added bonus that this book is set in my beloved hometown! Tense and heartwrenching moments are mixed with romance and humour delivering a wonderful read that I found difficult to put down. I am really looking forward to book two...

The Tobacco Girls

'A gripping saga and a storyline that will keep you hooked.' Rosie Goodwin

The start of a thrilling new series, from bestselling author Lizzie Lane which follows three friends through thick and thin.

Bristol 1939.School leaver Maisie Miles suspects her father, a small-time crook, has an ulterior motive for insisting she gets a job at the W. D. & H. O. Wills tobacco factory but keeps it to herself.

She's befriended by effervescent Phyllis Mason and kind-hearted Bridget Milligan who take pity on her and take Maisie under their wing.

But beneath their happy go lucky exteriors they all harbour dreams and worries about what the future holds.

Engaged to be married Phyllis dreams of romance and passion but when it comes there are dire consequences.

Bridget seemingly the level headed one harbours a horror of something unspeakable that she cannot easily come to terms with.

There's great comradeship at the tobacco factory, and with the advent of war everything is about to change and even the closest friendships are likely to be strained.
