IT'S SAGA SATURDAY!! My Monthly Book Review - Dark Days for the Tobacco Girls by Lizzie Lane...



Dark Days for the Tobacco Girls is the second book in the Tobacco Girl series and, although I have read both, I can confirm that this book can easily be read as a single title (although I highly recommend the first book, The Tobacco Girls!)

This instalment revolves around Maisie, Bridget and Phyllis as WWII edges ever closer and the girls lives begin to change - there is evacuation, changes at work, dangers from a reprobate father, hospital visits and more! There is nothing I love more than a series where I get to know the main characters a little better with each book and that was definitely the case with Dark Days for the Tobacco Girls. 

My main enjoyment with sagas is learning about the setting, some history and the relationships, both romantic and platonic, between the characters. All in all Dark Days for the Tobacco Girls is a great read!

Dark Days for the Tobacco Girls

Nothing will stop the The Tobacco Girls, not even war...


The Tobacco Girls cling together as they realise that the clouds of war are turning dark, the world is becoming more dangerous and their lives more unpredictable. 

Bridget Milligan’s big, happy family fragments when her siblings are evacuated to North Devon, then a letter from America further fills her with dismay.

Maisie Miles safe haven from both Eddie Bridgeman and her father is jeopardised and she is forced to move on, but where too this time? 

Phyllis Mason is struck down by tragedy and her life spirals downwards into despair until a new horizons beckons, but also perhaps great danger...

Regardless of the rationing, shortages and an ever-worsening situation, The Tobacco Girls all pull together and hope for better days to come.
