About the Book

’Cheerful and uplifting…I enjoyed it immensely’ Sunday Times bestseller Katie Fforde

‘A real page-turner with a spirited heroine…A sparkling new voice in fiction’ Sunday Times bestseller Veronica Henry

Even in wartime the customer comes first at Marlow’s department store.

It’s 1941 and young Lily Collins is starting work in Midlands department store Marlow’s, whose gleaming facade has fascinated her since childhood.

As the air raid sirens blare, Lily learns the ropes from her sophisticated boss Miss Frobisher alongside shy fellow junior Gladys. But her burgeoning friendship with young salesman Jim draws her into a swirl of secrets within the store. And with the war progressing to crisis point, Cedric Marlow and his staff must battle nightly bombings and the absence of loved ones to keep going.

From a former writer of The Archers comes a novel that weaves together a powerful sense of community and a vivid evocation of a time when every man, woman and child was doing their bit.

‘Highly recommended – an engrossing story with a charmingly forthright heroine’ Anna Jacobs
