My Monthly Book Review - Fire & Fury for the Tobacco Girls by Lizzie Lane...

                                                                    MY REVIEW

I was so glad to be back with Maisie, Bridget & Phyllis in the third book of the Tobacco Girls series - a fabulous series set amid the onset and duration of WWII. All the books can be read stand alone but I highly recommend reading them all starting with book 1, The Tobacco Girls. 

Fire & Fury for the Tobacco Girls continues as the girls sign up for different roles in the war effort meaning there is separation as well as challenges and emotional battles they are forced to face. The 'bad pennies' of the series are still rolling around and up to no good which adds to both the suspense and humour of this wonderful series. 

I love the personal growth of these three young women as they fall in love, meet new people and deal with extraordinary circumstances brought about by war. Resilient and strong but all different in their own way, Maisie, Bridget & Phyllis will work their way into your heart!

It's difficult to judge, but this book might just be my favourite in the series so far and I cannot wait for book 4 coming early next year!

Fire and Fury for the Tobacco Girls

As war rages, everyone has to do their bit...

Bristol 1941

As the clouds of war grow bleaker both at home and abroad, the Tobacco Girls are determined to do their bit for King and Country. To that end Maisie Miles and Bridget Milligan become voluntary ambulance drivers.

As well as coping with the frequent air raids, Maisie is kept on her toes with three new junior employees one of whom is particularly testing.

Bridget’s heart becomes torn between family loyalty and American tobacco tycoon Lyndon O’Neill III, the man she loves.

Meanwhile Phyllis Harvey has joined the WAAF, opting to serve overseas whilst trying to escape her past. Her letters home are upbeat and her friends are initially envious of descriptions of sunshine and blue sea. The truth she hides is that life on the island of Malta is fraught with extreme food shortages, daily air raids and the fear that tomorrow might never come.

The future appears far less certain as the reality of war bites into The Tobacco Girls’ lives.
