Secrets of the Sewing Bee - Kate Thompson

Paperback - Very Good Condition



1940. Orphan Flossy Brown arrives at Trout’s garment factory in Bethnal Green during the uncertainty of the Second World War. Soon Flossy is embraced by a colourful mix of characters, who fast become the family she’s always longed for. Dolly Doolaney gives Flossy a particularly warm welcome, and helps her settle in to factory life. However, things aren’t so easy for new recruit Peggy Piper.

Dolly decides to set up a sewing circle so that the ladies of Trout’s can play their part in defending the Home Front.

Armed with their needles, each of them set about stitching their way to victory. But when the full force of the Blitz rains down on London, the women of the sewing bee are forced to bear unimaginable terrors.

Will Dolly reveal the secret she’s held for so long? And how will Peggy and Flossy cope as their lives are shaped by forces outside their control?
