A Store At War by Joanna Toye

Cover

We have 10 copies of this gripping wartime drama from a former scriptwriter of The Archers to give away to 5 reading groups! Set in the Midlands in the midst of World War II, A Store at War is a powerful evocation of a time when every man, woman and child was doing their bit.

We’d love to hear what you think of this wonderful story, and we hugely appreciate you posting your reviews on Amazon, Lovereading, Goodreads or any other retailer/reading sites. You can also tweet us @HarperFiction or @W6BookCafe using #AStoreAtWar

ABOUT THE BOOK

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.

Expires 14th January 2019.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
