I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review All thoughts and opinions expressed here are my ownCan I take a step back from reviewing this book for a moment and gush about this entire sub genre instead Because I d like to gush about this sub genreBless war time economy in the 40s because it paved the way for women joining the workforce for taking up space in industries that were previously assumed to be male preserves Here were women doing the highly skilled jobs men thought they couldn t do and they even agitated for eual pay These stories are inspiring to read and there can t be enough books about these ladies IMOOver to this bookGirls at the Home Front is about women from the pitcolliery village of Massingham The main character Fran decides to support her family currently living on the wages of her pit man father by becoming a munitionette along with her friends How she navigates through a job that makes her risk her life and health every day and also deals with the problems of her family and friends forms the rest of the storyAnnie Clarke has written an excellent start to the Factory Girls saga with characters who readers will be left thinking about days after finishing the novel For these characters have been fleshed brilliantly and will have even the coldest of readers rooting for their happinessWhen I first started reading this novel I found the writing a little difficult because it s almost fully in the Newcastle Geordie dialect But I ve always loved hearing Geordie words they sound sexy don t me so I got used to reading them in no timeI think the best novels are the ones that have me shaking my fist at antagonists and this one went one up I complained about one of the annoying characters Ralph to my mom It was mostly because she got irritated by my constant tutting while reading this book but complain I did I was rooting for the main characters so bad I wanted to kill this meddling rich boy who wouldn t leave them aloneMost WWII sagas fall into the trap of making their main characters too sanctimonious but this one was a breath of fresh air The characters are not all self righteous they do slip up and make mistakes but overall these are just everyday people trying to go about their own lives looking for their own happily ever afters And therein lies the beauty of this novelAnother aspect that I loved about Girls at the Home Front was that it wasn t just about the Canary Girls There s another group of badass women the mothers of these girls who start a rug making co op I d love a spinoff or novella dedicated to these housewives who were secretly business savvy all alongIn all Girls at the Home Front is a heartwarming story of a close knit community trying to make it through a war both at enemy lines and at the home front in terms of dealing with life relationships and death This book is a fresh reminder about all the warrior women from the 40s and it goes to show that females are strong as hell I d recommend this book to anyone who loves their badass women war novels and stories of love and unity in the time of adversity

READ Girls on the Home Front Factory Girls #1

READ Ë PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ì Annie Clarke SUMMARY ã Girls on the Home Front Factory Girls #1 Nd with best friends Sarah and Beth by her side Fran signs up to join the ranks of women at the factory It’s dangerous work but as the three friends risk life and limb for their country they will discover that their lives are only just beginni. Girls on the Home Front is the first is a new series from Annie Clarke and it follows the ups and downs of a group of young women and their families during the war years The women live in the village of Massingham the focal point of which is the pit which sustains many a family although with this job it brings plenty of danger and worry on a daily basis Now that war has broken out the women step into new roles they would never have thought possible pre war Fran Sarah and Betty begin secret war work at a factory they are taken to by bus each day But the results of this work are clear for all their families and the villagers to see so it is not so secret even though if anyone speaks of it there will be grave conseuencesThe story follows the group as they become accustomed to this new way of life working long shifts in the factory We also get a very detailed insight into the lives of the men who work in the pit In many of the previous war time family saga books that I have read the men only ever briefly feature as they are away fighting so it was different and refreshing to see that they played a prominent role in this book The war although ever present in the hearts and minds of the villagers as it has an impact on their daily lives didn t have a prominent role to play so the focus was on how the women coped in the factory and the men in the minesFran had been a typist in an office but with her family situation at home changing and women needed to work in the factory she steps out of her comfort zone and into the fire alongside her friends Betty and Sarah I thought all three of the girls alongside the numerous friends they make at the factory were very brave and deserved nothing but admiration With the coming of war the roles of women had to change and it was evident they had to step out of their comfort zone Of course they were nervous at the work they were undertaking but I thought the bonds they formed and the support they showed each other would hopefully be enough to see them weather any storms that came their way They knew the work they were doing was all part of the process to help the many soldiers fighting to survive and to crush the enemy The majority of the characters had known each other since childhood and were well accustomed to the men leaving for work each day and the worry that ensued in case an accident occurred in the mines but they always drew strength from each other and this shone through at every available opportunity throughout the book Fran s relationship with Davey who is obsessed with crosswords and setting them and who is also the brother of Sarah felt very real and genuine but it is the son of the pit owner Ralph who tries to put a spanner in the works between the pairRalph was a character I just abhorred He came from the upper echelons of society and viewed himself as above everyone else especially those common folk who worked in the pits So god knows why he felt the need to join the men underground If he saw it as presenting himself in a different light well he was wrong as a leopard never changes his spots Ralph was cruel and devious and there was always an underlying tension when he was around He loved to throw his weight around and his intentions never appeared to be genuine I always felt there are ulterior motives at work here I just hoped the rest of the gang both male and female would be able to see through his wicked ways and expose him for the cad and the fraud he so clearly was I hated observing what was going on overall and even so that Fran and co couldn t see it or weren t fully clued up to all the goings on There was a fine line to thread but I did hope it would go in the direction I so desperately wished it tooThere was lots of nice observations of the daily lives of everyone and after awhile I could see connections emerging between certain characters and I could see what direction story lines were going to go much further down the line but for the a good part of the book I felt there was a lack of excitement that could have propelled the book to a higher level and made it truly memorableThe various little subplots were enjoyable enough to read of but none truly caught my imagination and had me gripped Truthfully it took me uite some time to get into this story and that was for several reasons I found the language spoken by the characters took some getting used to I understand the author wanted to make the book authentic and stick to the roots of the mining villages but I found the dialect difficult to understand at times I thought it slowed down my pace of reading and engagement with the story as I found myself having to reread sentences than once in order to comprehend everything and to make sure I wasn t missing out on any key informationThere was no uestion that detailed and extensive research was undertaken prior to writing this book but perhaps there was just too much terminology surrounding the mines and the work the men did and the various sections within the mine and the euipment used I would have loved to have had a glossary of terms associated with mining and the extraction of coal to refer back and forth to It would have deepened my understanding and perhaps my understanding of the conversations would have occurred uickly and I may have found the flow of the story easier I wouldn t have had to stop reading and go and look things up I just felt at times the story slightly strayed into a history text book when it came to mining and it lost track of the message and themes it was trying to conveyReeling things back a little bit with regard to this aspect would have helped yet saying that I didn t feel the same way when it came to describing the dangerous work undertaken by the girls as it was brief and to the point and the reader could easily see how important what they were doing was The book only picked up for me around the three uarter mark as until then I found the pace to be very slow As it is the first book in a planned series I realise there was a lot of introductions to be made setting the scene and establishing various story lines but it just dragged a bit too much before I finally began to see things coming together and then plenty of things were left hanging to ensure the reader would return for book two Girls on the Home Front was a different take on the war time family saga books that I have become accustomed to Despite the slow start the readers patience will be rewarded as you do become invested in the goings on of each of the characters as their lives prove to be interesting and definitely testing both because of the war and the work they are engaging in But also as there seems to be goings on outside of their control as they can t pin anything on anybody I m interested to see what will unfold in the next book Heroes on the Home Front which will be published in September this year There are certainly plenty of cliffhangers that need resolution and I d say a few skeletons to emerge from the closet too Overall this was an average read to begin with but as the story and characters developed it became much better and I am glad I preserved with
